Because of the time between the problem occurs it's not a valid way to
go by just using fstat.

I increased the number of file handles now, is there some
surveillance(sp?) system that's easy to setup and that can help me find
out what's happening. I think I had the same problem a few weeks ago
aswell, but I thought the computer schack got overheated which probably
was wrong.
