That's true, but at least the ones I'm familiar with have two capacitors and
contacts to take the start capacitor out of the circuit once the motor is
running.  A much smaller 'run' capacitor is left in the circuit (along with
the start winding) to improve the motor's performance.

Here's a (poor quality) diagram that might help Scott figure out what's
going on.
