thread pools in 2.1.10

I tested using the "listen" configuration, but still had the same result.  But if I comment out the "thread pool" section and everything works fine.

Any other ideas?

  Because it's not listening on any ports.

  You appear to have copied your configuration from 1.1.7 nearly
verbatim to 2.1.10.  This is probably not a good idea.

  You've also ignored the warning message before the text you quoted.

  Add a "listen" section, as given in the default config for 2.1.10.

  We don't really test 2.1.10 with copies of the 1.1.7 configuration.
It's *intended* to mostly work.  But if it doesn't work, well... people
can always read the warnings, and/or use the 2.1.10 configuration.
