Package: php5-mapscript
Version: 5.0.0-3
Severity: normal

I'm running a map application, that serves data from GRASS vector maps
with PHP5 and Mapserver. Each map 
produced leaves five (5) more file handles open:
one to:
one to:
and three to:

These handles are not reused while serving the next map based on these
files, but are left to accumulate. 
After a while the system starts to emit "Too many open files".
Restarting Apache frees the handles, so a 
regular restart is a remedy, but the behaviour is in any case not

This might just as well be a bug in the OGR library, part of libgdal,
instead of mapscript, but how am I to know?

Best Wishes,

Harri K.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll close the issue then.
