on my linux box (2.4.21-pre4-ac4)
I've used rsync to mirror a rather large /usr/local tree (4 Gb)
After transmission of many files I get the error message
rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(1045)

According to /usr/include/asm/errno.h the code 23 says
File table overflow

What can I do about that?

Many thanks for a hint,
