True. C++ version of the tests tries to be smart and uses 
synchronisation messages to get "run local first, remote afterwards" 
behaviour. Perf tests for other languages are simpler, using no 
synchronisation and thus require following treatment:

1. latency test - run remote first, local afterwards
2. throughput test - run local first, remote afterwards

You are right, it's confusing. We should drop the synchronisation code 
from C++ tests in the future.
