- Handle limit for OpenSSH SFTP?

I tried to open more than ~100 files on a remote SSH Server (OpenSSH on
Debian Woody and Sage), but I failed. The Internet-Draft for SFTP
version 3 says nothing about a handle limit.
So, is there any reason to have "only" ~100 OpenSSH SFTP handles?
VanDyke's VShell can open at least open ~14'000 files... :)

Yes, 100 value is hard-coded into OpenSSH SFTP server -- it's simply 'Handle
If you need a bigger limit for some particular server, you can patch the
sftp-server.c file (just increase the value). This should help.
