That is true; nevermind what I said earlier.

It would be nice to have something (fileserver-side) for 1.4 that
addresses this, but I'm still worried that increasing the number of
clients probed is too much of a change for 1.4. Or am I worrying over

The patch for this is simple, though. Jaap, if you want to run with
smaller timeouts, we can get you a fileserver patch that should make
them workable. (I'm assuming this is a 1.4 fileserver?)
