Sorry, it's the other way around actually -- correct for 8.3 onwards,
wrong for 8.1 and 8.2. In the earlier versions, it would do one run in
a chosen database, sleep during "naptime", then do another run.

The word "minimum" is there because it's possible that all workers are
busy with some other database(s).
