No, but perhaps I haven't been clear about the problem.  This isn't a
question of www.apache.org being over capacity.  This is a question of a
single client coming in and making multiple rsync connections until it
fills up all sockets.  I have no idea why the clients are doing this, but
it probably is some very badly programmed script.  The weird thing is that
is happening over and over again from multiple clients all over the world.
