Hi Nicklas,

This is currently a known problem. Meaning that we know what causes it, but don't how to
fix it :-(
But, therefor I added a work around parameter, "MaxNoOfOpenFiles" (default is 40).
  (I added it 2005-03-10)

Try increasing that to a big number say 100.

It would also be nice if you could mail the trace file, so that I can verify that it's the
know problem.
