Could be. Another explanation would be that Pan closed one of the connections
(e.g. timeout, read error) and created a new one, but the server still has
the original connection marked as open.

A 'netstat -a | grep nntp' at the time of the error would show you how many
connection Pan really had open to your news server.   Pan's Log Viewer would
also help in determining what was going on.

I've seen it reported once before, but AFAIK we never got enough information
to diagnose the problem.

No, Pan doesn't limit bandwidth usage (never has, for that matter).
