[ejabberd] Excessive number of open tcp connections

On the jabber server I run, I monitor the number of TCP connections in 
the ESTABLISHED state to ports 5222 and 5223.  I also monitor how many 
users ejabberd thinks are logged in (via ejabberdctl).

Sometimes there a slight discrepancy in these sets of numbers, but right 
now there's a large discrepancy and I was wondering if anyone knows what 
might be happening.

Right now I have 182 users logged on, but 260 tcp connections open. 
I've also looked at the list of connected users and I don't see many 
cases where one user is logged in multiple times with different resources.

This discrepancy is rather new, it just started this week.
I'm running ejabberd 1.1.4

Any thoughts?
