I think this means you're low on resources (memory, swap, file
descriptors, ...).

It happened to us some days ago, it was that we reached the upper limit
for max file descriptors.

If you have a 2.0.33 kernel, check
cat /proc/sys/kernel/file-max
cat /proc/sys/kernel/file-nr
The 2nd should be lesser than the 1st.

If you have a 2.2.x kernel:
cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max
cat /proc/sys/fs/file-nr

Are you able to issue any command on the console (free, ps ax, ...) when
this happens? If not what are the error messages?
