Nope, the BUSY setting doesn't happen until after a socket has been
accept()ed.  So they're all recorded as being READY and not enough servers
are started.

It looks like this might be a problem we should solve.  The serializing
options are a workaround.  The only solution I can think of without
serialize is to make the listening sockets non-blocking... I wonder what
is actually faster, maybe serializing is a good thing.
