Hiya, were you using the appropriate free_query & close functions to free up the memory & more importantly the socket used to talk to the sql server?
You might want to try using the _pconnect function if it's available instead of the usual _connect statement. I'd guess that PHP ran out of sockets to make outbound connections with. Also, I believe that MSSQL is setup to only have around 1000 max connections open unless you alter the value in the config.
