Hmm, I'm starting to think that this is why I ran into a similar
problem with Squid yesterday; it ran out of file descriptors, started
spamming the console, and made the machine quite inaccessible. :)
(Luckily there's a serial console.)  I've run Squid on FreeBSD for
years now, without ever encountering something like this!  I then
unthinkingly bumped kern.maxfiles to 8192, but it's probably better if
I try Robert's patch too.
