I seem to run out of processes frequently, and don't know what's causing
it. The only thing I've found that fixes it is a reboot. I don't
understand processes well enough to know what the problem is (windows or
I see this problem happen only when the process IDs are around 64-65k,
so I'm guessing that it's running out of processes. Process numbers
seem to increase for me when I run a lot of scripts (I have some web
traversal scripts in perl that call wget and other commands a lot).
When trying to run rxvt after the logout/in I get an error dialog with:
"Insufficient system resources to complete the requested service."
The taskmanager looks normal... no strange processes anywhere, and
normal memory usage. Does cygwin store any process related information
under /cygwin somewhere? I looked but couldn't find anything. Is there
anything to 'restart' about cygwin? I don't run anything except from
the rxvt/bash shells.
