 I apologise if I came across as just another dumb user who hadn't RTFM,
 but I did read the URLs you quote above aswell as a load of SGI web pages
 on file descriptors and searched the web/usenet for any related info.
 I came to the conclusion it was an OS issue and managed to increase the
 file descriptors available by using the systune command and setting
 the RLIMIT_NOFILE_CUR to 1024. Since then, both the hard and soft limits
 are set to 1024 rather than 200. But the problem still occurs at exactly
 the same point.

 We are running it on a Challenge DM but, as I didn't do the compile,
 Im not sure whether the -n32 option was specified. I will try a recompile
 with the -n32.
 
 Thank you for your help.
