Is it normal for this message Due to heavy load, the latest workflow operation has been queued. It will attempt to resume at a later time to occur before most workflows starts?

Do you get this under load or are you the only person on the box? –  Muhimbi Jun 16 '11 at 6:48

It depends, if it's a workflow that executes on a large number of items, yes you could see the queueing message. There can only be 50 active instances of the same workflow executing at the same time I believe. So if the workflow is on a large list or library with lots of additions or edits triggering the workflow, you may run into this frequently.

are you starting the workflow from the user account administrator ?

I've seen this message in this particular case.
