scirun> error: num_inits 549, num_fails 270 Mac OSX SEM_INIT: sem_open failed (twice):
FieldReader-block              : Too many open files
Thread "main"(pid 7345) caught signal SIGABRT (Abort)
/Volumes/Local/Users/paulo/bin/scirun: line 2:  7345 Abort trap


  This is a problem with the initial size the Mac OS shells provide
for the number of 'files' that can be opened simultaneously.  You can
easily fix it by typing:

limit descriptors unlimited


ulimit -n unlimited

Thanks, that fixed the problem. I thought I had done that, but bash was being called without the -l option, so it was not reading my .bash_profile file, where the ulimit comand was.
