nscd leaves too many open file descriptors.  there are plenty of fd's left in
/proc/sys/file-nr, yet the system logs errors to syslog and refuses to allocate
fd's to other processes.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. heavy load (user queries plus rdns queries).
2. nss-mysql module installed for authentication

nscd changed a lot since then, if you are able to reproduce this
with Fedora Core 3 test2, please reopen.
