Yes, that is what is happening.  Discovered the multiples trying to
troubleshoot whey mail didn't always go out.  When more than one instance,
it seems to get unreliable in sending mail.  Shut down the hourly cron, and
now only one Master/Children, and mail always goes out.

Does this mean that after 5 hours you'll have 5 masters and 25 children?
