Do you know how many windows there are by the time that each of three .ini
files have been read to the 100% mark?
Do you know how slowly each one of those windows closes when there's
hundreds of them?
I manually clicked away every single one of them because I wasn't sure if
I'd be able to reproduce the error or not, so once I'd got it I didn't want
to let it go. It was late at night and my judgement may have been impaired

them off, by any chance?
Oh, it's time to repost that do-the-dll-last patch again, with more
