Hammer max_faces screwing up

Hammer is now complaining that the map has too many faces. Which is BS because I checked and my map is well within limits:
7903 brushes
49334 faces
1482 point entities
1367 solid entities
545 unique textures

I am currently nodraw-ing several outer faces to reduce the count, but so far it is not working.
Any advice.

You should post the compile log

Due to the circustances I only executed vbsp.

I know about that. I even re-read it before I came here.
I told you its not my problem. I am under the face limit, and all the map solids are simple. It should not generate that many collision faces.
Sigh. I will keep nodraw-ing faces and see if that helps.
