   That something is broken inside Emacs, but Emacs doesn't tell what.

   Did you build Emacs yourself?  If so, could you please add a call to
   GetLastError to sys_pipe (defined on w32.c), after the _pipe call, and
   when it fails like that, see which error code it returns?

I was using Sean Sieger's build.  Anyway, i update bzr repo to
"revno: 105425".  Made following change:

   rc = _pipe (phandles, 0, _O_NOINHERIT | _O_BINARY);
+  printf("xwl: error = %d\n", GetLastError ());

   if (rc == 0)

In gdb, the error number printed is always zero, even when this
file-error comes up.  But it seems it would first give this error: 

  (file-error "Spawning child process" "resource temporarily unavailable")

After a while, starts to give following error: 

  (file-error "Creating process pipe" "no error")

Is it reaching some process number limit?

   This is quite old, suggest to update to a newer version, to avoid
   wasting energy on an old bug that was already fixed.

BTW, on my laptop, same OS, with a build back to Feburary, it has
no such problem.
