Creo2 'Hidden Parent'

21-Topaz II

Creo2 'Hidden Parent'

Creo2, M010

On my Windows 7 64 bit workstation running Creo2, the stack of icons
showing my open windows will sometimes show one or more called 'Hidden

WF4 & WF5 (and earlier versions, I believe) would do this when there was
another dialog or even an input box open, and that does seem to be the
case here sometimes, but these 'Hidden Parents' seem to stick around
after the dialog goes away. Sometimes, if I minimize Creo2 with a
dialog open, ALL the windows show as 'Hidden Parent' with no image to
tell me which is which.

If I decide to close one of them with the little X, Creo2 goes away but
xtop.exe and parametric.exe remain open in task manager.

Anyone else seeing anything similar? A search of the KB for 'Hidden
Parent' came up empty.
