Thanks very much!  I found that in addition to following those instructions, 
I also needed to add a

ulimit -HSn 80000

statement to the "start" section of my /etc/init.d/ejabberd file.

Now, the limiting factor is that my test program runs out of virtual memory 
;-) (which is what I expected to see when I first started testing ;-)).

Thanks again.
