mysqld actually permits max_connections+1 clients to connect.

 The extra connection is reserved for use by accounts that have the SUPER privilege. By granting the SUPERprivilege to administrators and not to normal users (who should not need it), an administrator can connect to the server and use SHOW PROCESSLIST to diagnose problems even if the maximum number of unprivileged clients are connected.
