After Cubase crash, restarted Cubase w/o pc reboot = crazy CPU/Disk meter

Lots of Cubase crashes. One interesting thing I’ve found, is that after a crash, I re-launch Cubase, and the CPU/Disk meter is going nuts, can’t playback a track or anything… no matter how CPU light it is.

Reboot PC.

Back to normal.

This problem is repeatable.

Windows 10, 64bit - 64bit Cubase 8.5
