>Environment:
Solaris 2.5.1 (sunos 5.5.1) with all sun's recommended patches
Compiled using Gcc 2.7
>Description:
Apache refuses to open the first CLF transfer log it comes accross, 
citing a lack of FD's (15 max). 

This is clearly not the case as killing our LIVE apache 1.2.6 server 
(130 processes at mid-load) and attempting to start httpd1.3.0 results in 
the same crash. Despite the dead 1.2.6 server freeing up some 30+ FD's, 
1.3.0 still claims that 15 is the max it can open.
>How-To-Repeat:
Attempt to open a transferlog in the environment described
>Fix:
Have looked at the source but cannot pinpoint the cause, is somewhere in the 
code underlying "ap_open_piped_log()" I think.

Confused.
