Bug#661223: libwebkitgtk-1.0-0: "Creating pipes for GWakeup: too many open files"

Package: libwebkitgtk-1.0-0
Version: 1.6.1-5+b1
Severity: normal

When one accesses certain websites (e.g. www.raspberrypi.org/faqs), browser
crashes after about ten seconds.  This occurs both in luakit and midori, so bug
appears to be in libwebkit.

When running either from console the following is displayed:

GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Creating pipes for GWakeup: too many open files

[1]+ Trace/breakpoint trap   midori

The last message varies with whether one is running luakit or midori.

Many thanks!
