if you're using PHP, its garbage collector will clean them up, but not
necessarily immediately. And if the server is loaded, it may be a while
before connections are closed.
Or maybe you're just getting a heavy load and you're working the poor
server too hard.
Sounds like you need to do some digging into what the server is doing.
