Local Session Manager Service - Excessive Handle Count?

Hey all,

I know that when a process is using a lot of handles, that means it's
consuming a lot of resources. So I'm pretty surprised that lsm.exe
(Local Session Manager Service) consumes between 15,000 and 30,000
handles on my machine! In XP, I usually have 15,000 handles open on a
system with lots of applications open. Why would lsm.exe be using so
many handles? Is this possibly a concern?

Does no one have any thoughts on this?
