On startup of mysql-server 5.0.12 on FBSD 5.4-RELEASE my server always has 3
0-size unreferenced files with 69 links reported by lsof +L1.

23 groups of:
mysqld  6179 mysql    6u  VREG   4,17        0     0    9 /var (/dev/aacd0s1d)
mysqld  6179 mysql    7u  VREG   4,17        0     0   23 /var (/dev/aacd0s1d)
mysqld  6179 mysql   11u  VREG   4,17        0     0   24 /var (/dev/aacd0s1d)

This doesn't cause problems but I am curious as to what is causing it and if I
could do anything to fix it?
