Well the problem has since vanished. : P
At this point /proc/sys/fs/file-nr is showing ~1800 allocated and ~1300
inuse file handles. The machine has not been rebooted since the time I was
getting those error's, so ~1800 was the highest amount of handles ever reached.
(far short of the default 4096)

Considering the country's population, of 230 million people, the U.S.
government agencies maintain an average of 15 files on every man, woman,
and child in this country.
