mysqldump reports error 24

I've got an ISP, and all of our customers have databases in our mysql system.

My backup command is
mysqldump --force --opt -A -pxxxxxxxx' | gzip -c > /var/sqlbackup/mysqldump-`date +\%A`.sql.gz

This has worked fine for some time.

Now, however, we get an error message:
mysqldump: Got error: 1017: Can't find file: './usr_web22_1/invoices_va.frm' (errno: 24) when using LOCK TABLES
On different runs, it reports different files.

I've looked at the mysql documentation for this error; it's at

I've looked at the startup script, put in '--open-files-limit=1024', restarted mysql, and the error is the same.

I've looked at the table_cache and max_connections system variables, which are 64 and 100, respectively.

My question is: what should I do now?

Since table_cache and max_connections are far less than 1024, do I reduce them even further?
Is there something else I should be looking at?
