AFAIK, you can't assume that the connection is closed when the process exits.
There is a delay as the connection state progresses from connected to closed.
Parallel connections would only increase the number of concurrent connections,
and you'd see the error sooner.

To see what I mean, run netstat and your script at the same time to monitor the
connection states.

If you want info for one file, why is the log call in a loop? And what's
stopping you from parsing more than one log entry at a time? If you must call
cvs each time, you'll have to include a delay or do something else to keep the
connection count below the limit.

I avoided listing this option in my previous post because it will only delay the
problem. When you have a sequence of calls large enough to hit the new limit,
you'll be stuck again.
