The job was like `git pull && rpmdev-bump && git commit && git push' run
on already cloned repository. We configured SSH client to use
auto-closing master connnection and when we run the job in more threads
we got errors like unexpected SSH session close by remote (probably
after timing out gitolite or what Fedora uses behind the SSH).

We found by experiments the `more threads' is more than 6 (or 8,
I can't remeber now).

Marcela asked on #fedora-admin whether there was some limit set on the
server site but nobody could confirm or deny it.
