Xenon vented to space


Question

KSP Version: v1.5.1.2335 Windows 64-bit, new

What Happens: Opening a previously closed xenon tank results in instant depletion of said tank.

Mods / Add-Ons: All Stock

Steps to Replicate: 

Launch any ship with ion propulsion and (in my case) two X-750 tanks

Close one of the tanks to keep fuel reserve.

Spend any xenon from the other tank

Reopen the tank

Xenon content in said tank drops instantly from 5700 to zero

Somebody mentioned something similar a couple weeks ago, version 1.5.0, and posted on the bug tracker.  
That was with LFO tanks, and only happened intermittently, maybe the information helps you avoid the problem.
