I'm inclined to agree. I still think there is some locking issue that is 
either slowing things down, or deadlocking in the cleanup phase before 
things like db connections can be closed. I'm thinking the problem is 
occurring after you send the result to the client, so it's not obvious 
that there is bug. This would explain why you are hitting MaxClient and 
db connection limits.
