[mythtv-users] Backend not honoring "MaxSimultaneousJobs"

I've got 3 backends that are supposed to share UserJobs, with each 
backend limited to 2 maximum simultaneous jobs. I've also set MythTV to 
allow jobs to run on any server--not just the recording server.

In the past this has worked perfectly, but I just queued up 4 jobs in 
quick succession and I noticed that one backend has claimed all 4 jobs: 
it started 2 of the jobs, and has the other 2 jobs in it's queue.

How can I force each backend to only 'claim' as many jobs as it can 
execute and leave other pending jobs for the remaining servers?
