the number 350 rings another bell: if your software uses one thread per
connection, and uses the default stack size (which is 8 to 10Mb on
modern linux/glibc) you'll run out of 32 bit virtual address space
around 350. If that's the case you probably really want to tell the
pthreads library that you know what you are doing and that you want a
smaller stack size please ;)
