What version of Solaris are you running?

Another Solaris 7 user is getting user id lookup failures when no file
descriptors < 256 are available.  Apparently Solaris 7 uses stdio to read
/etc/passwd, and 32-bit Solaris stdio is busted for file descriptors >= 256.

This could cause intermittent failures at run-time based on how many file
descriptors are in use by other threads (a changing quantity).

I can't hit the problem on a Solaris 8 box, as it uses a different mechanism to
do user id lookups; but I have a lot of patches applied, and it could have been
changed in a patch.
