Like recompiling the kernel, quite possibly.  On FreeBSD there's
a sysctl, although you may still have to recompile the kernel in
some cases I think; on Linux you can zap a variable in proc.  On
solaris....who knows <wry grin>.

I don't see why zope should need so many file descriptors.  But
you may have to start tracing code <frown>.

I have previously noticed a related phenomenon: on FreeBSD when
I start zope, *something* tries to open every possible port
number using a separate file descriptor. They must
then be closed, because after startup only the ports requested
are still open.  I determined this by running lsof and capturing
the output.

In this case, it appears to be benign; the only negative consequence
is the appearance of the "Too many open file descriptors" message
in /var/log/messages.
