Coda File System

Server only handling one transaction at a time?

sorry about fireing off one question per day here... it's just that we're 
finally getting around to really fleshing out coda in an attempt to set up a 
semi-production server.

During testing we noticed that the server seems to be handling only one 
transaction at a time, regardless of which client it is coming from. So 
suppose A is copying a large file onto /coda, all operations (read AND write) 
from other clients have to wait.

Is this how it's supposed to work or is something wrong? I wouldn't want to 
accidently launch a DoS attack on the server if I'm sometime on a modem 
copying a 1 meg file onto Coda :)

If this is expected behavior - is it server-wide or volume-wide or something
