Ad 3. Sysconf(SYS_MAXFILES) returns 32. Test fails after opening 26 files.

This is not the number of files you can open, this is the maximum number of files a process can have open.

It is the number of files a process can open at the same time (without closing any).

Under Unix every process have at least 3 open file descriptors at

Right. Hmm, so does Sysconf(2) return the number of files a single process can open (32)?
