    I'll give it a go. But first I ought to try to reproduce the problem
    more easily - it happened after about two hours of a test which had run
    for two or more hours (before hitting the apparently unrelated problem)
    at least twice each on at least two machines. So until I can reproduce
    the problem more easily, it'll take some while to have confidence that
    your patch addresses it. Therefore worth a little effort at my end to
    cut it down (and if I can't cut it down, I may have to solve the odder
    locked page issue to get the original test to run long enough to hit
    the file-max problem with any likelihood).

    It'll waste less of both our time if I at least try to reproduce it
    more quickly first. Hold on...
