I have NPP 6.4.5 installed on Windows 7 64 Professional SP1.
When closing NPP it doesn't always terminate the process. Sometime it does, sometimes not.
After having opened and closed NPP several times there can be left up to 3 processes of NPP in the task manager.
I don't know whether this behavior happened also with previous versions.

    This bug remains with NPP 6.5. and 6.5.1
    One result is that the restart after plugin update doesn't work because the process is not terminated. I first have to terminate the NPP process manually to have NPP restart.
    I find it very annoying and hope for a soon fix.
    Thank you.
