That bug was nominated for 1.2, but I see the patch is still pending.
Why not commit it?

I tested the fix briefly by lowering ulimit -n and the message is
triggered. On the other hand, a ridiculously low value for ulimit -n
gives weird errors -- there's nothing we can do about those.

There might be some other places where the EMFILE error could be
triggered, but having it just in CreateFile is a pretty good heuristic

Do we want to give more info on how to fix this, maybe point to a wiki page?
