As far as I know, this is mostly a problem with
perform_idle_server_maintenance where the server isn't getting a
continuous stream of inbound connections (i.e. test machines).  And I
don't believe it has regressed since 2.0.16.  

So (in my mind anyway) the impact of this problem on a production server
is mimimal.  Yeah, maybe we should do something about it someday, but it
shouldn't stop us from releasing a better beta.
