"Device or resource busy" when attempting to add a third buffer with iio_device_create_buffer to ad9361-iiostream.c example code

Hello-

I am  modifying the ad9361-iiostream.c https://github.com/analogdevicesinc/libiio/blob/master/examples/ad9361-iiostream.c example as a simple experiment to create a third iio buffer.

I have no competing applications such as iio-oscilloscope using the resources, but console output shows that it  "Could not create RF buffer: Device or resource busy" on the first attempt to run the code.

In this thread, https://ez.analog.com/linux-device-drivers/linux-software-drivers/f/q-a/87769/libiio-device-or-resource-busy-when-creating-buffers/313187#313187 mahkoe seems to have successfully created the buffers , but can't open them after running another program that uses the resources.. I cant create them at all even though it is the only program I run, not even the first time after a fresh boot from power off of target and host.. I am using zc702 and FMCOMMS2.

Console output below:

root@analog:~/tmp# ./ad9361-iiostream
* Acquiring IIO context
* Acquiring AD9361 streaming devices
* Configuring AD9361 for streaming
* Acquiring AD9361 phy channel 0
* Acquiring AD9361 RX lo channel
* Acquiring AD9361 phy channel 0
* Acquiring AD9361 TX lo channel
* Initializing AD9361 IIO streaming channels
* Enabling IIO streaming channels
* Creating non-cyclic IIO buffers with 1 MiS
* Receive buffer created
* Transmit buffer created
Could not create RF buffer: Device or resource busy
* Destroying buffers
* Disabling streaming channels
* Destroying context

It seems straightforward and common to create multiple buffers, can anyone see what the issue is here? I appreciate your suggestions.

I've attached my code and anything that I thought should be modified to create the third buffer (which I call RF) is commented with //RF or /*RF*/
