In that case, I'd definately suggest looking into the relevant IRX's 
sources to figure out who exactly is losing those FD's and why.
As you say that it happens with all devices, I suppose the problem 
relies on the IOP side of filexio.
I was rather sure that this bug was fixed ages ago, but if you say that 
it's still present..
I'll try to look into it this weekend, but tbh, I don't think I'll 
actually have time for it.
