And furthermore the "fd" in question is 8, so even Suns would
not become troubled with it..
Btw: Solaris maxima for fd is 1024, but STDIO uses u_char
as storage for fd (if you get a middle finger extender muscle
cramp from this, you perhaps need to consider GNU libc :-/)
With router we saw a very difficult case of stdio-fd leakage,
which was partly caused by my "mistake" of removing
fileno(fp) = -1;
from the code (it was actually a lot more convoluted).
The file-descriptor in question was not to be closed, but
stdio-fp was needed to be deallocated..
It sure does give a feel of same kind of situation.
Tom, will it happen:
- with fresh start of the scheduler with empty queue
aside of this one job ?
- or only after several jobs ?
I would like to see your scheduler.conf -file, and
the alias you use to drive the script.
