I've been able to reproduce the bug.
See attached patch.
The metro opens the same 2 files, it works for 30 seconds,the RAM doesn't grow, and then Pd says 

error: GemImageLoad: Unable to find file.
And then, if I want to save my example patch, Pd says :
error : too many open files.

Is this a bug of pix_image ? Is there a limit of opened files somewhere ?
How can I avoid that ?
