Yes, this is one of the main problems.
But it is not stricly necessary to close all the opened connections.
The open syscall should return a file descriptor that is the lowest file
descriptor not currently open for that process, so maybe it is safe to
just close the first 256 descriptors.
Of course there should be a timer that make sure to close the child
process when it timeouts, to avoid a CGI program to stay alive for too
