  I'm running smbtorture, loading up a big Solaris 8 UltraSPARC, and 
found I only have a big enough enough MAX_FILES for 36 clients.

%  ./smbtorture //localhost/netbench -Ulab%password -N 60 NBW95
host=localhost share=netbench user=lab myname=server
Running NBW95
38 clients started
[many dots...]
....(1672) nb_read: handle 4256 was not open size=4096 ofs=0
...............(1677) nb_read: handle 4256 was not open size=4096 ofs=4096

This constant is common to smbtorture (in the samba build tree), 
dbench and tbench, and should be bumped by at least 10. I'm
planning to go to 60...
