Stdio is used for log files, license files, external files, and the like.
Socket I/O uses send/recv. The problem isn't with sockets, but random
file opens.

The work around was to use a public source C library with a more
generous slot for the fd. That solved the immediate problem, but
some other limit, as yet undiagnosed, popped up.
