Thank you for that piece of info. How high would you say would be
"insanely" high for, say, a server w/ 8GB of RAM?

Broader question: if I start a continuous replication, will that hold
a thread open for the (theoretically unlimited) duration of the

They key thing is that I'm trying to figure out how we hit that limit
without doing anything _too_ mean to the server. Increasing the thread
limit sounds like it might be part of the solution, but I'd like to
understand the problem a bit more, and I'm doing a bit of blind
