 To study the OpenSSH SFTP server you should look at the function
 handle_new() in sftp-server.c in the OpenSSH source code. As you can see
 it allocates handles dynamically and is thus not limited to 10 open
 handles. Again maybe this is different in the version you are using, and
 you could always try to use the latest version of OpenSSH on your server
 and see if that makes a difference.
