	Recent CVS version contains a way to run parallel
	transport-agent sessions, however there seem to be
	some "submit same task more than once" problem,
	which appears at the scheduler logfile as warnings
	about rescanning a task file.

	The method is to use  maxthr=N  where N > 1
	parameter at channel/host clause parameters.

	It is not perfect implementation, but might help you.
