I haven't seen it before, but assuming that the error message really is
the error, it looks fairly straightforward: the Apache process is running
out of open file descriptors.  You'll want to either figure out what is
leaking file descriptors (scripts running under mod_php, mod_python,
mod_perl, etc. are the most obvious cultprits) or increase the file
descriptor limit for the process.
