I had the same problem with me linux box running squid, I fixed it by
makeing the default open file descriptors lower in the kernel config
option, if you want more you can do an echo to the /proc (I think)
And you have to do a "ulimit -n <how many FD you want>" in the shell you
run and compile squid in. The place where I have put it in my redhat 5.1
squid box id /etc/profile.

Hope this helps
