Meaning what?  You get exactly the same traceback every time?  Every time
you try to connect to ZEO?  Once an hour?  Once a day?  Too much telepathy
required here.  Are you using Zope?  Is this a standalone application?  Are
other apps on the box mucking with a large number of files?  Etc.

I don't know.  The only other report I found was from 2001, and didn't
appear to be resolved at the time:

    http://mail.zope.org/pipermail/zodb-dev/2001-October/001616.html

Since others don't report "Too many open files" errors, presumption has to
favor that you're doing something unusual, but I can't guess what.  Line 55
in trigger.py is

            r, w = self._fds = os.pipe()

so all we can tell from the traceback is that the OS ran out of file
descriptors and so can't create a new pipe.  The descriptors opened there
are closed again by the trigger.close() method, so I suppose that if the
latter isn't getting called, open descriptors would build up.
