When this happens can you do a "ps ax | grep couchjs" on the machine
hosting CouchDB? It sounds like you've hit the process limit (which is
configurable). Hard to say if this is because you have lots of
concurrent clients holding couchjs processes or if we're leaking them
out of the pool somehow. If you can show that there aren't any clients
holding them (ie, from view updates or long list calls) then I'd be
super intrigued to see if you can narrow it down to a test case. I've
heard a couple anecdotes about leakage here but never with enough
detail to start looking for a root cause.
