You are brilliant, it ended up being MaxStartups, added 20 to the default, e.g.

#MaxStartups 10:30:100
MaxStartups 30:50:100

And all files opened just fine. I tried increasing MaxSessions first -- no help.

Ralph, thanks, I too have:

    # override default of no subsystems
    Subsystem       sftp    /usr/lib/ssh/sftp-server

It looks like MaxStartups was the setting at issue. I'm glad it is there (I
haven't had any huge kate project since 2012/13) It just caught me a bit by
surprise when I opened an old web-site project with 34 files in it.
