[Owasp-dirbuster] Java IO Too Many files open

Seen the too many open files in other Java projects, and it was actually
related to too many open tcp/ip connections. Try reducing the number of
threads or tweak your operating system tcp/ip stack to have a higher
connection limit.

I'm running DirBuster on VMWare Ubuntu instance.  I have 4GB memory for the
VM, 2GB memory for DirBuster with java -Xmx2048m -jar DirBuster-0.12.jar.

I've cut the small file down to 5000 lines of entries and I keep receiving a
java error "Too Many Files Open" after 20 min or so with 100 threads
running.   What could the issue be or what in DirBuster isn't closing?

I'm not sure where to start debugging.
