I'm wondering why sc_serv thinks there's no available open file capacity to create pipes when the limit is 65536 and there's 6456 currently in use - there's spare capacity to allow another 59,080 open files yet sc_serve thinks it can't open any more.

I see the various other processes running on the machine that have files open for their purposes.... nothing stands out as using up gobs of files. There's some un-necessary stuff that's running that I can get rid of, like a Bluetooth service (WTF? yeah it came with the distro) so I'll prune some of that away.

But even with perhaps a thousand files being opened by useless daemons, there should still be plenty of capacity.

I'll look at other system resources, maybe something else is in short supply and sc_serv experiences it as a lack of available file handles.
