This sounds like a file descriptor leak.
The server should not be opening so many files at once.

Do you have a reliable way of reproducing this? I.e. can you
deliberately make the server open 1024 files? If so, how exactly
do you do it? Please provide enough details so that somebody else
can try to trigger the problem in their environment. Thanks!
