OK, it is not causing any problem.
It sounds like each instance keeps it own index of files, which could
be useful.
I notice that after an unscheduled shutdown, StrongEd starts back up
with the previously open files. I haven't gone out of my way to stop
this as it seems reasonable behaviour.
One thing that I miss from Linux is the re-opening of a file at the
point it was last edited.
In the other direction, I miss StrongEd's simpler copy text method,
There is possibly hot keys to avoid the copy and paste, but ideally
would need to be set to the same as StrongEd's.
For example, in Linux I have set ctrl-F12 to open a terminal
so the expected thing happens.
