I realise that, but should 1.2b23+patch1 use more file descriptors than
1.2b20 did? Twice now our caches have run out of descriptors under 1.2b23
whereas they run for weeks with 1.2b20.

Unfortunately I've not had a chance to debug it any further as yet, so
I've backed out to 1.2b20 for the moment :-(
