Also, see how many open files you have: echo /proc/self/fd/*
It'd be quite weird though to have a very low fd limit or a very large
number of file descriptors open in the shell.
That said, as Casper says, utilities like mv(1) should be able to cope
with reasonably small fd limits (i.e., not as small as 3, but perhaps
as small as 10).
