How many fds can *you* open?

I'm having trouble on both my recently-updated cygwin
machines.  They crash after opening 130 to 180 fds.
Here's a little program that just counts how many
fds it can open for /dev/null.  I suspect a few of
you will also have my problem.  Could you run this
and report back how many fds it reports, or whether it crashes?
