So it was probably scenario #2 you describe.  I just would have expected that to take down the whole VM if the child spec was defined with restart type permanent

Well, I'm quite sure there are a large number of variations on #2. As
far as I've seen, once you hit emfile, it's pretty difficult to recover
from it, hence our move to try and stop this type of error from
happening in the first place.

Yeah, any year now it'll get merged into default...
