Ruby net-ssh problems


Hi everybody,

we’re using the ruby net-ssh library from the ubuntu 8.10 repository
(apparently net-ssh 1.1.2) to connect to multiple computers and run some
programs there.
However the maximum number of connections to one computer (host) seems
be 10. When we try to establish 11 connections, the 11th call to
Net::SSH.start just blocks, seemingly forever.

Is this a deliberate limit? If so, how can I control it.
