in that case, never mind. I forget what an InActConn is in 
NAT at the moment.

I wait till it overflows and then back off one at a time

There's only a few people using it so we don't have a lot of 
experience with it. I think Ratz (who I expect is the author 
of the threshhold code), is the only one I know who's using 
it. If you want to try with ActConn, I don't see any reason 
of the top of my head why you'd get into a whole lot of 
trouble. I wouldn't treat the threshhold options as cast in 
stone by supreme all knowing people. I think Ratz is the 
only one who has been using it. (Ratz of course is all 
knowing, but he was probably using LVS-DR.)

good luck. Let us know one way or another how it goes.
