Nope, I'm aware of that limit, and -c was set to 120. The problem
would arise with any number for matter what, it would still get
caught up at 40 connections.

The fact that I couldn't replicate the problem with the exact same setup
under 5.2.1R makes me think it's something related to the version that
came with the machine.
