Isnt www.caldera.com a Linux server. Can I take this as an unintentional
revalation about upcoming software ? This is actually a far more interesting
point than anything related to the bug 8)

The system is set up so that you run out of files before you can run out
of inodes. It is a "cannot happen". Unless of course you up the max files
on your box without upping the inodes.
