This is a known issue with FlexLM. Each connection consumes a file handle when the LM_LICENSE_FILE value is set to the name of the license keycode file. FlexLM doesn't close license files in a timely manner.
Instead of setting LM_LICENSE_PATH (or ESRI_LICENSE_FILE) to a pathname, use the form <port>@<host>. For example, set it to "27005@myhost" rather than "/licmgr/lickey.txt"
