Yes, I have had this setting for ages, and it is what trigger the

That's because you're using an older (working) version of mozilla. I saw 
this problem starting with 1.3. Up 1.2.1 it worked fine.

Mozilla uses a number of imap connections settable per server.
With the following preference

user_pref("mail.server.server1.max_cached_connections", 2);

it should use maximum two connection to server1.
