An excellent example of a parallel programming problem would be decrypting RSA 
algorithms and other encryption algorithms. In RSA, the major time/cycle 
consuming part is coming up with the prime factorizations for modular 
base(N). Projects like distributed.net are already working on this. You could 
take leads from them.
Another possible parallel programming problem would be something related to 
High Performance Scientfic Computing (HPSC). Clusters are widely used in HPSC 
everywhere and there is plethora of information available on this on the web. 
You could also have some eccentric use of cluster, like computing Pi to the 
longest number of decimal places. For such applications, no programs(IMO) are 
available for clusters, hence u write one and have it listed of freshmeat if 
u care.
