Yesterday I posted a message stating that my server was running
into problems, logging messages like :

Caesar vmunix: file table overflow

A big thanks to everyone who replied. The solution (as I half
wondered) was to increase the MAXUSERS constant in the kernel
configuration file (as it controls the size of various system
tables). Then to rebuild the new kernel, install it and reboot.

Role of honour: (thanks also for the list of 4.1.3 patches)
