Thank you, it works fine by reducing the max_files_per_process to 200 
(instead of the default '1000' value).

But it's amazing to me that i had to reduce it so much as the postmaster 
is almost the only application running on this server. There only 3 or 4 
simultaneous connections and the kernel max files is set to 12500!

Is that comportement normal or not?
