Where there is one, there is likely to be a cluster. However both ENOSPC
and EFILE can be explained by a bo leak, just differing by how they were
used prior to the leak. Eventually we run out of fd handles on the
system (EFILE). If we mapped those into our process space before the
leak then we hit the much smaller address space limit (ENOSPC).
