On a server that has quite a few SSL connections, I started to notice 
that FDs were leaking. I set the load balancer in front of nginx to stop 
sending new requests to one server for a few minutes (to let the 
keepalive time expire) and found that there were a few thousand FDs 
open. netstat says that there are many sockets in the CLOSE_WAIT and 
ESTABLISHED state for the SSL server. Many of them have data in receive 

Any ideas what might cause this? This is an up-to-date 0.5.x install.
