no real idea, the source code only tells that a stream is flushed,
nothing astonishing. Maybe it's as simple as your harddisc gets
overfull? Or maybe some weird problem of a library or the operating
system? Can you try it on another computer?

Just checked: pdflatex stops processing a test file here (debian sarge,
teTeX-3.0) at jpeg image no. 1017 ("To many open files" -- comes from
where?), but with plain pdfetex even 5000 jpegs don't cause any problem.

Regards, Hartmut
