Enfile error means that you've reached a maximum number of opened
files. Ejabberd uses up to 3 files per user connection (i'm not sure
if this numbe is the same for HTTP-poll or BOSH connections), per
outgoing and incoming server connection. So, it's fairly easy to reach
the limit. Try to increase it using ulimit (OS side) and ERL_MAX_PORTS
environment variable (erlang side).
