How can i limit and/or specify the connection count in the client side API?

RFC 2616 (HTTP 1.1) Section 8.1.4 states:
Clients that use persistent connections SHOULD limit the number of 
simultaneous connections that they maintain to a given server. A single-user 
client SHOULD NOT maintain more than 2 connections with any server or proxy. 
A proxy should use up to 2*N connections to another server or proxy, where N 
is the number of simultaneously active users.

Normally my proxy has one active user (a Mozilla 1.2.1 with HTTP/1.1 to 
proxies enabled) and opens up to 20 connections to my server.

Even if i set the max connection (JigAdmin/http-server/Properties/proxy) to 5
more than 10 show up.

Is there a bug in the client side of jigsaw or have i missed an important 

The real reason for this message: I have some protocol like ssl and the 
handshaking while establishing the connection takes much cpu cycles. I want 
to reduce the connection count to reduce the overhead.
