           Summary: "FS_HandleForFile: none free" recurses infinitely
           Product: Quake 3
           Version: SVN HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Misc
        AssignedTo: zakk at icculus.org
        ReportedBy: bugzilla at benmachine.co.uk
         QAContact: quake3-bugzilla at icculus.org

When the filesystem runs out of file handles, it calls Com_Error with
FS_HandleForFile: none free
This calls Sys_Error which calls Sys_ErrorDialog
...which calls FS_FOpenFileWrite to write a crashlog
...which calls Com_Error with FS_HandleForFile: none free
This continues until the binary segfaults.

My suggestion would be either using the stdio file calls to write crashlog.txt,
or refusing to write it when in a recursive error. Both methods have their
drawbacks of course but both are also better than the current behaviour, imo.
