	That depends on your operating system. Linux seems to have
	per process hard limit 256, in Solaris we have currently 1024
	(which is the default value), used to have 16384 (that can
	easily achieved by editing /etc/system and rebooting) but Sun's
	license manager didn't like that value. I have an impression
	(but I might be wrong) that atleast in Solaris there is no per
	system hard limit at all, only per process limit. I wouldn't
	be suprised if Linux had a fixed per system hard limit.
