This certainly sounds like a bug to me. Please can you provide details of
which Xen version you are using and which state files are the subject of
the leaked file handles.

The presence of an "xl restore" process is not itself a bug, this is
similar to the daemonised process which "xl create" produces to monitor the
domain for shutdown events and the like.
