possible security hole(unsure)(really minor)

Its possible that a client picks two servers that don't currently have a
connection or have a connection with no other traffic between them to form a
hop. This results in complete lossage as only one client is sending data
through the connection, eliminating the security of that hop against timing
attacks. Do I have this wrong or is this a real issue?
