I installed ap2-py23pth-python-3.1.3nb1 and python23-pth-2.3.4nb3 from

When I restart apache I see this in httpd/error_log:

[Fri Nov 12 09:12:03 2004] [notice] mod_python: Creating 32 session mutexes based on 150 max processes and 0 max threads.
[Fri Nov 12 09:12:03 2004] [error] (28)No space left on device: mod_python: Failed to create global mutex 9 of 32 (/tmp/mpmtx118609).
[Fri Nov 12 09:12:03 2004] [error] mod_python: We can probably continue, but with diminished ability to process session locks.
[Fri Nov 12 09:12:03 2004] [error] mod_python: Hint: On Linux, the problem may be the number of available semaphores, check 'sysctl kernel.sem'

I find "0 max threads" a bit worrying, and running out of mutexes too.

What is wrong here?
(This is on 2.0_RC4, i386, only native threads involved)
