Not sure yet, but it sounds unlikely (the limit is on simultaneous
processes).  Do you see the value of rc becoming negative at some
point?  If so, does _pipe return a negative value, or does it become
negative in this fragment below the call to _pipe?

      if (phandles[0] >= MAXDESC || phandles[1] >= MAXDESC)
        {
          _close (phandles[0]);
          _close (phandles[1]);
          rc = -1;
        }

If the latter, it sounds like we are not closing the file handles
somewhere.

That's a good clue, thanks.  I will try to look into the changes since
then.
