1) check whether the soft limits really increased.
2) we may have a situation where FOPEN_MAX is
defined as getdtimesize(). In this case the code
must always log the error message (not a functional
failure mind you - see comment #21).
For an automagically fix for these and other cases see comment
#10. though the expression is botched there. It should be:
max(0, min(getdtablesize() - FD_CHUNK, FOPEN_MAX))
