MKL Limited to 1 Thread in Anaconda

If you have used the preload trick to use Math Kernel Library (MKL)  with an early version of Anaconda, you will find that under Anaconda 4.4 MKL is limited a single thread no matter what settings you enter. The solution is to remove the LD_PRELOAD entry for MKL, log out, log back in and you should be good to go.
