Not a bug but it means that fileassoc will not work on that
filesystem.  Really, generating a fh is not that hard, it just has to
be something that can uniquely identify the file on the file system.
At a guess, in your case, it could be the address of the file node in
memory... it really does not matter as long as it's unique :)
