I've got this in my crontab
* 12 * * * mysqldump -u root -password --all-databases >
/srv/www/sql-backups/$(date +\%y\%m\%d).sql

Then I do some manual cleanup every couple weeks... it works for now. I
would expect this to just run the dump, create the file, and that's it...
I'm getting tons of errors like this:

mysqldump: Couldn't execute 'show fields from `contact`': Out of resources
> when opening file '/tmp/#sql_242d_1.MYI' (Errcode: 24) (23)

and everything grinds to a halt... what's the big deal here?
