That is correct for :pserver: access -- it appears that you're not using
pserver, though.

Correct.  -T only affects the local process, so giving -T to a client
has no effect on the server and vice versa.

That means that you're using :ext: or :server: access (or :fork:, but
that isn't very likely), and that's the correct thing to do.

I've made some changes to the documentation to try to make this clearer.
