Yes, that'll be it. According to [1], "the default size FD_SETSIZE
(currently 1024) is somewhat smaller than the current kernel limit to
the number of open files".

It looks like you can probably override this by defining FD_SETSIZE
yourself, in which case 'CFLAGS='-DFD_SETSIZE=8192' make' (or similar)
should fix the problem.
