The mongrels are started under CPanel and we're not using clusters.

It's running mongrel 1.1.5
ruby 1.8.7 (2008-06-20 patchlevel 22) [i686-linux]

I'm not sure exactly how many file descriptors causes it to die - though 
I've seen 400+ and it running fine and I'm guessing it dies at 512.

Ulimit doesn't seem like it's changed at all.
