	#define MAX_OPEN_POLS 64

Without being able to open other policy handles, things like
SID<->username mapping will fail.  You can up the number of max
handles and recompile. 

WHat version of Samba are running?  Samba 2.0 is not that 
great as a PDC though.  I'm going to guess that this is 
associated with some application you are running that queries
the Samba DC for account information a lot.

Can you provide some more information in case this is 
a leak somewhere?
