Did you rebuild a kernel with more file resources? utmp is a bad file to
lose updates to as some breakins show up there. Look at the LINT file in
/usr/src/sys/i386/conf and add the server-tuning stuff like MAX_USERS. I
know you may not have many users, but these are multiplied by a constant
to scale the file buffers. With all that application load (esp Apache and
mSQL and Perl), there will be more files open. - Jy@
