I posted about this in the forums in June but forgot to post here:

Windows system resources percentage goes down upon the opening of each new layer but does not go back up when closing that layer. So during the course of a browsing session, having opened and closed many layers, but now just viewing 1 open layer, the system resources can be below 10%. This is not the case with new KM windows. The percentage does go back up when closing a window.

My completely uneducated guess is that closing each layer doesn't actually close it but just hides it until exiting out of KM completely. I don't know if this is assumed behavior from the layer plugin by design, or a design flaw, but it requires the user to exit KM prematurely if multiple layers are continually opened and closed.

Tested using TclockEx on Win98

I've not encountered this bug in the beta. Perhaps it was a 1.2b problem.
