and your bug report is where? :)
i'd love to see some diagnostics when that happens, since i've not
seen that myself.
however, there is this option in the config file:
maxprocs =3D num
Throttles the number of concurrently forked pro=AD
cesses to num. The intent is to provide a safety
net for the unlikely situation when the server
tries to take on too many tasks at once. Note that
this situation has only been reported to happen
when trying to use a garbled configuration file!
You don't want to use a garbled configuration file
now, do you?
