Every thread in every client has 3 fds: command, reply, wait. Other fds
are allocated as well I think for things like open files, but I'm not sure
of the details. I know that when I hit these sorts of problems it was due
to the large number of threads blowing the fd limit (there were lots of
sockets as well).
