Max Simultaneous Transfers over set limit causes server timeouts

In Concurrent Transfers default was 4 but Filezilla was trying to send more than 8 simultaneous transfers causing Server to do dozens of 5 second timeouts since it has a limit of 8 concurrent transfers allowed. Verified this was the problem in cPanel, which showed 8 current transfers, with warnings. This occurred when I was uploading about 2200 files. Left about 120 as "failed".
Basically, even though setting was 4 concurrent transfers, program was sending 8 and trying to do more, stalling out my server.
After complete, I changed the settings to 3 simultaneous transfers, put the failed files back into live queue and resent OK.
Conclusion: the amount of files in upload queue caused something to override default simultaneous setting.
