It's only a serious leak (first grade leak if you want :) if it grows
without bounds on repeated operations.  IE, if you do the same
operation N times, and the number of ports is increased by N*k.
(Assuming that the operation returns to the external state from before
the operation was started.  For example if you open files, and keep
them open, then that will of course create additional ports.  If you
open a file and close it again, it might create some ports once due to
caching, but from then on it should not each time you do this).
