This is likely due to memory constraints on your system, or limitations on semaphores, not actually running out of APC cache space.

I would suggest, that you use pthread locking (default in the latest version) or spin locking (more experimental).  These shouldn't have the constraints you're seeing here and are preferred for your OS.  Let us know if these options cause problems for you.

Yes, now I user pthread locking.
But it is time to add information about semaphore 
limitations in FAQ, INSTALL and documentation APC.
There is nothing about new features in manual too (added 
with version 3.0.11).

Yep, the documentation needs some updates and is on our list of things todo.  Thanks.
