A too many open files problems

I try to copy 50000 files to a floder that I create on my Freebsd 9.1
samba 4.0.8 system.
That would fail with the the message "Too many open files, unable to
open more! smbd's max open files = 16384".
Too many open files, unable to open more! smbd's max open files = 16384
[2013/10/22 14:14:58.578522, 0] ../source3/smbd/open.c:340(fd_open)
So I do a test I create a floder. And I just enter this folder.
There are there files on this folder.
Then I command "losf -p pid". I see the three files were still
holded by the process, although I don't open them.
smbd 66082 root 46r VREG 0,89 3894 3797927
smbd 66082 root 47r VREG 0,89 35349 3797928
smbd 66082 root 49r VREG 0,89 8442 3797929
So if I try to copy 50000 files to a new folder again, I see the
files that were holded by the process grow up.
Why the samba should keep these file handle?
