What is output of 'ulimit -H -n' and 'ulimit -S -n', or 'limits -B -n'...
If soft is less than hard and soft is insufficient, check if tor
calls setrlimit(2) at all or correctly, or just bump soft to hard.
And some other shell may be starting tor than the one you
execd limits in... see login.conf, sysctl, rc, init, etc.
