That absolutely should not be the case: one connection counts as one
connection regardless of the number of groups the (single) daemon worker
process takes on.  If you are hitting the "max connections" limit, make
sure you have specified a "lock file" that no other rsync daemons are
using and you don't somehow have old daemon processes hanging around.
