[mythtv] OT: Mysql file handles?

In one of those idle moments I ran lsof and saw a lot of open files from
mysqld to the mythconverg database. A LOT!!

# lsof | grep mysqld | wc -l
gave a result of 2657 after an uptime of only 24hrs

After restarting mysql it reduces to 376.

Is this normal? Seems a bit excessive to me...
