Hm I was still setting MAX_CLIENTS by accident from configure, so I 
didn't notice.

I had a patch ready to remove x-google-mux, I am not currently working 
on it.  So I pushed it and that should solve that...

Yes MAX_CLIENTS has gone, the New Way is the library finds out how many 
file descriptors the OS will let it have and then allocates at runtime. 
  So you can control this now by ulimit at runtime without needing 
anything doing at configure-time.
