a very confused mailscanner?

Hi there,

We've recently set up a testbed to test mailscanner under constant medium
to heavy usage scenarios.  After a particularly good beating mailscanner
went out to lunch with:
Nov 10 17:10:35 d3 nosa_MailScanner[834]: Could not open file >/var/spool/mqueue/nosa/mailscanner_work/834/hAALp9dR077394.header: Too many open files
Nov 10 17:10:35 d3 nosa_MailScanner[834]: Cannot create + lock headers file /var/spool/mqueue/nosa/mailscanner_work/834/hAALp9dR077394.header,

At first I thought it was insufficient file descriptors available so I up'ed
that limit and rebooted.  No effect.  The in queue has only 1400 emails to
be processed, system is idle, tons of all resources available.

Anybody have any idea what's up?
