Is there anything I can do with this problem, or is it a duplicity
problem that needs to be fixed?

What version of duplicity?  The current version is 0.5.02 and an update
may help.
$ duplicity --version
duplicity 0.5.02

  Also, what is the command line?
It's one of these three, I believe it's the second one:

duplicity cleanup --force file:////storage/backup/duplicity/kontor/photowork
duplicity --full-if-older-than 1W --exclude-other-filesystems /var/autofs/cifs/photowork file:////storage/backup/duplicity/kontor/photowork duplicity remove-older-than 1W --force file:////storage/backup/duplicity/kontor/photowork

As you can see, I'm backing up a Windows SMB share via autofs automatic mounting (shouldn't really be of any concern, AFAIK).
  Any other info you can share
would be helpful.
$ cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max

$ uname -a
Linux server 2.6.27-7-server #1 SMP Thu Oct 30 05:04:11 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

$ python --version
