libprs500 error fetching Economist

When trying to fetch news from the Economist, libprs500 0.4.34 (and 0.4.33) return an error (see attachment). This feature only worked the first time I tried to use it; every time since it's failed.

I also tried the NY Times feed. I put in my password & waited, but after an hour or so, I gave up.

Am I doing something wrong?

Looks like your OS is running out of file handles, try raising the limit.

Fraid I dont know how to do that on OS X
On linux you'd edit sysctl.conf

Try one of the smaller feeds, say Dilbert

OK, I'll look around in the Apple support discussions to see if I can learn how to do it. Thanks for your help (and your wonderful application, without which I'd have a very boring library on my PRS500)!
