That is not true. He is running on a VPS which probably does limiting on
threads he can use. mysqld uses up quite a bit of threads, and yum's
fastestmirror plugin uses up even more. So he hits a limit there - and
yes, this happens with standard repositories (the php doesn't account
for that behaviour). It's all the fault of the VPS he is running on.
