[Bioperl-l] looks like a Bio::SeqIO error

As mentioned in the thread by Kevin, using LargeSeq may not be the
best route as it generates a tmpdir/tmpfile for each sequence, so you
are probably reaching a hard limit for the number of temp files for
your system or for File::Temp. The oddity is one or the other (or
both) are not removed, so I think this is a legit bug.
Regardless, there's a good reason this hasn't been encountered
before. If you have ~30,000 sequences that you extract subseqs from
you should seriously consider using a flat file db such as
Bio::DB::Fasta or similar. It is capable of handling very large
sequences or files and can extract subseqs easily.
