Yes, they are longer lived client connections.  One thread
per connection, just like Apache.

That still doesn't fix the potential Linux problem that this
benchmark identified.

To clarify: I don't care as much about MySQL performance as
I care about identifying and fixing this potential bug in
Linux.
