Something is almost certainly leaking file handles, when too many are
open at once, you can't open any more (neither for reading nor writing),
so all kinds of bad problems happen. The default limit is usually 1000
or so, on Linux you can check and change with the `ulimit` command.
It's probably not [soundfiler] or [clone] to blame, but more likely some
external that isn't properly closing the files (or directories) that it
On Windows I think you need to close with the right function w.r.t.
DLL/EXE module boundaries. There may be something in the list archives
