Isn't this 1024 file limit a system limit that can be raised up by using
shell commands?

If I do:
address@hidden:~$ ulimit -a
open files                    (-n) 1024

So, doing 'ulimit -n 2048' should allow 2048 file descriptors for the
process. I tested on my machine and I need to be root to do that. Maybe
a Debian Unix expert might help?
