The gui program oprof_start leaks file descriptors in
the 0.2 and the current snapshot (20020512) of
OProfile. oprof_start will continue to open new file
descriptors to "/proc" (about 12 a minute on my
machine) and never close old file descriptors to
"/proc". This can be observed by examining the fd
directory for the oprof_start process in /proc. When
the file descriptor limit for the process is reached an
error is produced:

oprofiled: /proc directory could not be opened. : Too
many open files

oprof_start exits immediately after the error message
is printed.

    this is corrected in the current cvs, it's leak due to a
    missing closedir
