"wild socket" and lots of file URLs

I've encountered the message "wild socket" in the trace from the
library.  I've searched the archive, but only found it mentioned
together with caching and HTTP 1.1, and in this case I get it on
neither.  I get it on local files (I think).

The trace from the last file loaded looks like this:
...

(and then it's "wild socket" all the way to the bottom)

I'm digging into this right now myself, but any hints and tips are
appreciated as always.

Am I running out of file descriptors?  Is that the problem?
