Ejabberd (1.1.4 on Debian Etch) is regularly crashing for me. This 
happens several times a week. There's nothing in the log files that 
indicates what the problem is, but sometimes after restarting the server 
crashes again immediately and places this in the log file...

=ERROR REPORT==== 2007-11-06 16:16:55 ===
Mnesia(ejabberd at master): ** ERROR ** (could not write core file: emfile)
  ** FATAL ** Cannot open log file "/var/lib/ejabberd/PREVIOUS.LOG":

=INFO REPORT==== 2007-11-06 16:16:55 ===

     type: temporary

=INFO REPORT==== 2007-11-06 16:16:55 ===
     application: ejabberd
     exited: shutdown
     type: temporary

Although I have the heartbeat option set when I start ejabberd, the 
server never appears to restart.

The server is serving three virtual hosts, with about two dozen 
connected clients in total. There's several thousand jids each on the 
roster of two of the clients, and the rest have much smaller rosters
