Could you be running into the file limit descriptor limit?
Try checking out your file system descriptor limits. Do a cat
/proc/sys/fs/file-nr. You should get three numbers aaa bbb ccc where
aaa is the system reserved
bbb is the current number of file descriptors
ccc is the file descriptor limit.
There is a file system parameter you can adjust to make it permanent. It
just escapes me for the moment/
