I agree with that ('smell test') but I don't think this is a smoking gun
in this case.  relese/release isn't part of the inheritance chain and
isn't called.  'mActiveCount' isn't used in any decisions that I can  
This looks like a remnant of an idea that didn't play out as intended
and could now use some clean up.

Running 'lsof' should have give you an opportunity to identify the
type of the extra open files (may need some help from netstat).  Are
they tcp or pipes?  If tcp, what is the destination port?  80?  1204x?
