Hey Ted,

	Hmmmm, I _did_ consider that before posting, and I
checked 'ulimit' as the user the daemon is running as, with an
"unlimited" result.  Because these are each separate processes
spawned off, they shouldn't be hitting any shell-specific limits
(bash2-static in this case).

	However, I believe you hit the nail on the head with
login.conf.  I didn't realize that maxproc-cur and openfiles-cur
were as low as they are by default.  I'm guessing I'm hitting 
the wall with one of them.  I'll try adjusting them upwards a

	That's probably the end of my problem, but if anyone
has further thoughts, they're more than welcome.  Thanks a bunch!
