I think this might also have to do with configuration-values used in the projects AND in ~/.MusE (until now, Werner seems to have changed this a cpl of days ago, in unstable CVS, haven't tested it though). If f.ex. the config-values are stored in ~/.MusE, the last project is still opened when starting up MusE and thus those config-values are used (I'm not sure if stable MusE is actually storing those in values in the project file too, but this might not be the case, causing the confusion). But changes in configuration should be seen in ~/.MusE too, if the configuration is saved...
