I am facing frequently below issue after increasing maxfiles (after sysctl
-w kern.maxfiles=40000 && ulimit -n 1024 ), sometimes it works after
restarting Riak but frequently crashes with the below error.

System: Mac OS X 10.6.3 + (after sysctl -w kern.maxfiles=40000 && ulimit -n
1024 )
Riak: tip with clean build and few doc in a single bucket + single riak
Bitcask: whatever riak pulled
