Objet : MySQL 5.0 creates 100,000 Window handles

I noticed if my program executes a lot of Select statements, Windows XP 
will slow down when the program completes. I did some investigating and 
mysqld-nt.exe has close to 100,000 handles created when my program ends 
(shown in Task Manager and SysInternals Process Explorer). As each Select 
statement is executed, 2 handles are created. These handles will stay 
allocated until the MySQL server is stopped (stopping my program won't free 
up the handles). Windows of course runs slow with this many handles

1) What is MySQL using the handles for?
2) Is there any way to stop MySQL from consuming so many Windows resources?
3) Is it like this on Linux?
4) How does a MySQL server handle millions of queries on a large table? 
Will it hit an upper limit of Handles that it can allocate?

Note: it does not appear to allocate more handles if the query is found in 
the query cache.
