Unable to launch applications using panel.

A couple of days ago, I noticed that I was unable to launch applications using the panel.  When I do click on an icon, an Error box opens with the following message:

"Failed to create pipe for communicating with child process (Too many open files)"

Any idea what's causing this?  I searched the mailing list archives but found no reference to this.  I'm using XFCE 4.0.5 from Debian Sarge.

Until next time, Colin.
