Reportlab Image object opens filehandles

I am trying to build a pdf document using:
from reportlab.platypus.flowables import Image
lst = 
for filename in imageFiles:
I= Image(filename, width= 300, height= 300)
Creating an Image object seems to open a filehandle, so if the size of
imageFiles increases, I get "IOError: [Errno 24] Too many open files" on a
Solaris machine, where the number of simultaneously opened filehandles
seems to be limited to roughly 255.
Is there a way to produce a pdf document with a large number of images
without running into the problem of too many open filehandles?
Thanks for any hints.
