The resolver can leak UDP sockets if the first nameserver in
/etc/resolv.conf is down or invalid and the second is valid.  To test this,
I wrote a sort program that ran gethostbyname in a loop and ran it under
strace and watched the descriptor numbers steadily increase.

Do you have latest glibc errata installed?
This looks like duplicate of #18332 which has been fixed in glibc-2.2-12.
