Linux, RedHat 6.1 (out of box install with IP aliasing patch), gcc latest version
Until i installed 1.3.11, I was running 1.3.9 (both with mod_ssl) and didn't have this problem
with identical software. After running for several hours, the system starts generating "too
many open files" errors and must be manually restarted. I thought this might be a system instability,
but have tracked it back to the install date of 1.3.11. It's happened daily since I installed
that release.

I run a number of perl daemons that interact with Apache CGIs, and I'm wondering if the CGI
perl is not having its filehandles properly closed on exit? I'm not sure how to better document
this. I'm reverting to 1.3.9 right away to solve the problem.
