out of filedescriptors

it appears that, when using CNFS, each nnrpd uses as many
filedescriptors as there are cycbuffs. Now, this leads to
a problem under the following conditions:

1. large spool
2. file size is limited to 2 GB in many OS

Imagine a 400 GB spool, which consists out of 200 cycbuffs.
This would mean that a system configured for 4096 file-
descriptors could hardly handle 20 readers.

Has anyone solved this problem ?
