Hello ,

I am using the latest vortex library available on sourceforge.
The scenario  is such that my initiator is connected to listener and in 
the event of listener going down  the initiator keeps on trying to connect 
to the listener until the  listener comes up.
This reconnection attempt is tried periodically after every 30 seconds. 
After some time, say 4-5 hours(the listener is still down)  i get the 
system error(set in errno in linux) as socket call failed; too many open 
This is happening even after calling vortex_close_connection before every 
reconnection attempt  to listener. Seems socket descriptor used for 
connection attempt is not closing.
Please let me know if anybody has faced similar problem and the possible 
solutions too :-)
