[Mongrel] Mongrel error : EMFILE too many open files

Well I changed the session store to memory_store and it still crashes.. 
I don't get the EMFIle error, mongrel just stops responding to any 

I would try database store but I can't put the session store in my 
default database for concurrency reasons.  I tried to find instructions 
on how to set it up to use a separate database file but haven't found 
that yet..

I also wonder about why mongrel was still using pstore after I upgraded 
to rails 2.0.1?  I thought the default for 2.0 was to store it in the 
cookie file on the client? Mine was still creating pstore files in tmp? 
Shouldn't it use cookie by default?

Really a drag having my web server crash just because somebody sits on a 
page for more than 10 minutes.
