Could you please check if this bug also exists in the latest version (3.2.1)? The Kid3 PPA (see has a package for Ubuntu 14.04. I think that this error was fixed with the improvement "Reduce number of open file descriptors with TagLib >= 1.8" in version 3.1.2.

Should the bug still be present in the latest version, then please tell me if you are using TagLib (your files have ID3v2.4.0 tags or you have disabled the Id3libMetadata plugin) or id3lib (default configuration for files with ID3v2.3.0 tags).

Mmmm! I can't reproduce this bug using the same version 3.0.2. I'll keep the bug open until someone else confirms it.
