How about another tdb? :-)  Have a tdb that is indexed by service name,
and increment/decrement the number of connections when the connection is
claimed and yeilded. Whats more, we only need to do this when 'max
connections' is > 0, so performance isn't hit.  Finally, do a cleanup
occasionaly to walk the connections.tdb to check that the
maxconnections.tdb is correct.

This particuar fix doesn't look too painful/difficult, in any case.
