Server load is temporarily too heavy?

	Found it!  :)  Thanks Chris - I think that helped quite a bit.

	I think the only other thing is that is seems to process a little slow.
For example, if I send 20 messages or so in a row, it takes a while to
resolve them all.  Are there settings related to this?  The server is pretty
hefty and can handle the CPU hit; plus I'm only using IRCd for a game
server.  Users can only chat, change rooms, and post their game state
information every 5 seconds or so.

	If you have any thoughts, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks again,
- Anthony

I havent used hybrid 6 in quite awhile and dont have the src tree on
hand to double check, but look in include/config.h. I believe
#define PACE_WAIT is what you are looking for.

                                                 Hope this helps
