Well, I fixed it by hardcoding the maximum number of open files in the 
mud. Check comm.c, 'cause I don't remember exactly what the name of the 
function was... (find something like *limit)

I think it has something to do with Linux itself. The number comes from 
the max number of open files - a few reserved ones...
