SocketServer and long-polling connections

I apologize if this message is a repeat.  It looks like didn't get received.

I'm using SocketServer to implement a local server that serves comet 
long-polling connections. 

How do I increase the maximum number of open connections?  Currently it 
is limited to about 8 I think.  More than that and it seems to block on 
opening more connections until one of the other connections releases.

Is it possible that the limit may actually be imposed by the client in 
some bizarre way?  In this case all of the clients are local, and are 
multiple instances of the same mozilla activex DLL.
