Howdy y'all.

Got my XD about a month ago and have taken it shooting weekly. For my first outing, I put 500 rounds of Rem UMC through it without issue. Cleaned, lubed, and went back a week later with 250 rounds of WWB and got a handful of FTEs. Suspected my cleaning job (this is my first gun), so I gussied it up with much vigor, and took it back a week later with 300 rounds of WWB --- got a slightly larger handful of FTEs. My shooting partner suggested it might be a bad mag, so we marked 'em, gave the XD the ol' once over, and went back to the range a week later (today) with 200 rounds of WWB --- got even more FTEs, spread across two mags, with one mag having 3 FTEs during the course of fire.

Yeah, damn.

Anyway, we're going back tomorrow with both some UMC and WWB in hand for testing. Details as they develop...

You have a gun with a fairly common problem among gun problems.

Fairly common for what guns? All the guns I mentioned don't have a common problem failing to extract.
In context, I believe what UD is saying that amongst gun problems, failure to extract is fairly common. 1911s probably are more prone than others (I would imagine that Bill Wilson has made a little bit of money selling extractors over the years). I have seen failure to extract occur in Glocks, Berettas, and even STIs during USPSA shoots and have experienced it myself in my Gold Cup and in an ill-maintained, range rental Sig P220. That is not to say that it happens in all Glocks, Berettas, Sigs, Colts, and STIs. Heck, I've even seen wheel guns where the cylinder needed to popped out and the spent casing driven out with a punch...
