I get the open files problem a lot when i use kde components.
As far as i know, this is only the possible limit you can set the
actual value to:
kern.maxfiles = 3404
So 3404 is not the current value, but the max value.
This delivers the current actie value which is likely to be 1024:
If you set:
ulimit -n unlimited
then it will set the current value of possible file descriptors to the
max value of 3404.
If you need a higher max value, then you need to recompile your kernel
with a new standard max value.
