Without more information its hard to say -- you might provide some information about what operating system and what version of postgreSQL.

I have some vague memories of "error code 5" being sometimes a message that indicates that there are insufficient file handles available. Not sure if this applies in your case, so if you coulkd provide more context a more helpful response might be found from some one on this list.

On a side note this, cross-posting is usually not considered good form; the admin list is probably the most suitable for this one. And the list owner is almost never the right address since that's an alias for isssues about the list itself, such as signing up, etc.
