[Bug 632314] [NEW] slapd Too many open files

Public bug reported:

I reported this back in 2007 on Dapper and we've been rolling custom
debs since then.


Recently we've upgraded to lucid and are having the same issue again.
After a short period of time with heavy load, we get:

Nov 19 10:23:03 core01 slapd[24753]: warning: cannot open
/etc/hosts.deny: Too many open files

We've only got a few thousand users and <700 workstations using the
directory so I can't see why nobody else would be seeing this issue.

Any chance of having the compile options changed on the official package
so that this doesn't happen, or am I facing a further 5 years of rolling
my own every time there's an update?
