Mysql thread problem

I've installed mysql v3.23.51 on a rp5470 with 3 Gb of mrmory. Every connection in mysql leads to a new thread and the standard setup for HP-11.00 is 64 thread/proc max, so it quickly turned out that we had to change the max_thread_proc and nkthread parameters. We changed max_thread_proc to 128 and indeed the max number of connections available grew to about 120. max_thread_proc is now 512.

The problem is that sometimes the problem arises again and with a number of connections (I get them from netstat) aroung 60/75. Now the questions are: has somebody else seen this problem? Are there any other parameters to check ?

1)Do you see a message in the /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log when it goes wrong.

2)How is your patch level.
