Essentially, yes. Client has to close the file to relinquish 
connections, if clients are using the common read/write interface.

Currently if a client keeps many hdfs files open, it results in many 
threads held at the DataNodes. As you noticed, timeout at DNs helps.

Various solutions are possible at different levels: application(hbase), 
Client API, HDFS, etc. https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3856 
is proposal at HDFS level.
