[torqueusers] Max Connections

On a follow up question here, I've had issues in the past with trying to 
increase the Max Connections setting (or even at 4 for that matter).  As 
the number of connections go up, I'll often get failures on calls, 
typically with some sort of a gripe from pbs_iff (allegedly, I will get a 
stdout print statement from pbs_iff).  This is always associated with a 
threaded situation where a number of calls are attempted simultaneously. 
I've always had to synchronize my calls into the API.  My understanding 
has always been that this stems from some sort of a race condition 
associated with setting the server_name property.  It also means I end up 
wrapping any API calls with a fair amount of defensive coding (for 
instance, have a c++ wrapper around the API that handles making the 
connections for me and insuring that a valid connection is retrieved and 
being very patient with waiting for it).  Have other people experienced 
this and is the solution for libtorque to not try and retain the current 
server_name, or have I totally missed the mark here?

This was indeed it.  Thanks Garrick.
