Update of sr #106567 (project duplicity):

                  Status:             In Progress => Invalid                


Follow-up Comment #3:

Problem is in cygwin itself.  The ulimit -n (number of files) is set to 256
and that is way too small to run duplicity of any size.  Previous experiments
show that duplicity will open ~220 files on even a small backup.

To aggravate matters, it seems that new shells get the old limit even if you
increase it in the current shell, so the workaround for this is to execute
your duplicity tests as:

  $ while true; do ulimit -n 1024; PASSPHRASE=foo duplicity ...

It seems that this needs to be done with every invocation of the
'while...do'.  Googling seems to indicate that a rebuild of cygwin will be
needed if you want to permanently increase the limit.  If you find out how,
let us know.
