This number is _not_ the maximum number of connections, it is the number of
hash bucket entries. Buckets may contain multiple connections, but this is
less efficient as the hash bucket is a linked list.
The real limit is the ammount of memory you have. Each _empty_ hash bucket
takes 8 bytes (under ia32). And by my calculations each connection takes
124 bytes (under ia32) for an ip_masq structure.
