That and Curtis mentioning he's unsure about timeout, has me wondering how it may be handled.

I've changed eFarm.78 to 4 threads to see what will happen with it. This one I do expect to timeout, if the server is set to 3600 for clients. But, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised and find 4 threads better than 8.
The first WU didn't restart for me. The original range was 22690000-22695000; I noticed almost immediately that I'd got the wrong number of threads and killed the client. When I started again with --override t 6 the client was given 22695000-22700000 instead. Maybe changing the number of threads made the server think it wasn't the same client?

Edit: I'm also noticing that the 6-thread machines aren't quite running at full load; I'm seeing load averages around 5.75. This isn't happening with the 4-thread machines. Maybe there is some inefficiency in running more than 4 threads per client?
