On OpenBSD, /etc/login.conf defines resource limits. There I have:


128 is generally fine, even Firefox and other beasts work fine with that limit.

I think you can try to reproduce the problem on Linux when you lower the open 
files using
ulimit -n 1000
maybe for your case, or something lower.

On a linux box where I have access, the open files limit is set to 1024, maybe 
for you too, and
you just missed it by a small number of songs in your playlist?

How I did it: in the Add music files dialog, I just had my home directory open, 
and I definitely
have more than 128 audio files in there, which Cynthiune could pick up. Mostly 
mp3, but also FLAC,
Ogg, and some others.
When I clicked there the OK button, It already started to behave weirdo, then I 
tried to restart Cynthiune
on the console, and saw the console output. I deleted the playlist, to be able 
to start Cynthiune again.
