When C6 Artist inevitably crashes...

… with the ‘A fatal error has occurred’ message, why does it take so long for the process to end (from within Win 7 Task Mgr)? It can be anything up to 15 mins after the failure that it stops… even when manually clicking ‘End Process’. I can’t run another instance of Cubase until this one dies or I get audio driver conflicts. It’s 2011, should I really still have to reboot my machine after a software crash?

For what its worth…
