Limited no. of raster in project

I have a large project with lots of geotiffs in it, anyway less than a hundred.
Actually I'm not able to load other rasters in the project. Each time I try the following message appears:
"/path/to/my/new/geotif.tif is not a supported raster data source".
Of course my file IS a supported data source. If I open a new project (or a smaller one) I can add my raster with no errors!
Sometimes a strange error: "Too many files open" appears, but non always.
Maybe this post reports the same problem: http://osdir.com/ml/qgis-user-gis/2008-06/msg00118.html
I'm running QGis 1.7.3 on a MacOS X Snow Leopard (10.6.8).
Thank you for your help!

You can load several rasters as one, through the use of VRT (catalog) files. There is a performance degradation (we might be working on this in the near future - support welcome), but it is way more convenient.

That is what I did. I added 60 rasters in a vrt, then I was able to add 2 more rasters. Then the error reappeared! All I can do now is to split the main project in sub-projects, but this can not be a solution!
