Without explicit login failure messages my correct login message could be

Knowing how much traffic to send without any feedback is hard. I don't
think there's a good general solution. In port scanning we default to 10
probes outstanding with a 1-second timeout for each. Just set a good
safe number and we can adjust it later after performance testing.
