Correction: all of his were 1G, and should be halved.  *You*, on
the other hand, should try doubling the RAM size.  8-).

Another potential winner is:

        options maxfiles=50000

Note that I believe this one, the RAM size change, and the compile
without debug all merely mask, rather than fixing, the problem (i.e.
it's not the code that's generated, it's a side effect of a more
subtle and amusing problem).  I don't believe anyone actually
loads kernels with debug symbols anyway if you "config -g GENERIC",
unless you intentionally copy up "kernel.debug", you will get the
stripped one).

The suggested options, if they work, actually *fix* the problem,
but it's a really pessimal way to go about it (they work by making
the requisite preconditions impossible to trigger); only an idiot
would run with those options, unless they had no other choice in
the matter (e.g. they had local kernel hacks that broke all of
the other workarounds, with no hope of repair).  If it's what I
think it is, it's more fixable than that.
