I think it's a problem of amount of file descriptors : depending on the user, you have a limited amount of file descriptor that can be used (inside the tor's code, file descriptors are also used as handle/identifier for all network connections).
I think the max amount of it (for a given user) can be checked with the command "ulimit -n" as this user.
When I had 2 tor clients running (the second launched manually by a user named "tor2"), I modified the "limits.conf" file, adding those 2 lines at the end :
#* soft core 0
#root hard core 100000
#* hard rss 10000
#@student hard nproc 20
#@faculty soft nproc 20
#@faculty hard nproc 50
#ftp hard nproc 0
#ftp - chroot /ftp
#@student - maxlogins 4
tor2 soft nofile 100000
tor2 hard nofile 100000
May be it needs a restart, or it doesn't apply to what have been started by "tor2" user before the modification
When tor is launched by /etc/init.d/tor start may be this haven't to be done manually.
That's all I know about it, hope it will help you to find and correct the problem !

since I upgraded the torland relay from 2.6.7 to 0.2.7.6 I get the following

doc/TUNING for guidance. [101144347 similar message(s) suppressed in last
Google only spits out https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/16929
which does not help me. I don't find the mentioned branch bug16929 in git.
Can someone please advise what has to be done to avoid the warning, or point
