Hmm...  Seems to work for me, or at least it did last time I tried it 
(with a pay server I don't have ATM).

You didn't try to edit the file with a pan instance running, did you?  
Because pan does save some stuff when it exits, and would have likely 
overwritten your change with what it was set with when it started.  If 
you are going to directly edit the config, you must do it with pan shut 

Also, I'm not sure if new-pan works this way, but (with a different 
setting, cache size) old-pan would reset it if you hit save from the 
settings dialog with that setting in it.  Since the connection setting is 
per server, that means once you set it above the GUI max setting, if you 
change anything in the GUI server settings dialog for that server, you'll 
probably have to close pan and reset the connections in the file once 

Other than that, it was working for me (on Linux, Gentoo/~amd64 FWIW) and 
for others as well.  If it's not working for you, I'd call that a bug, 
and file it as such.

I'm x-posting this to the user list (with followup set, assuming the 
listserv doesn't rewrite it, so check there for further replies, FWIW I 
participate in the lists as newsgroups, using pan, thru, which 
is more appropriate than devel in this case.  With luck we'll get 
confirmation from others there currently using the feature as to whether 
it continues to work for them or not.  (Not so many subscribe to devel.)

What version /are/ you running, BTW?  I'm not sure whether the feature 
was there yet in 0.90 or if it was added sometime later, but from say 
0.112 or so it should definitely be there, but if it broke somewhere 
along the way...
