Out of curiosity, why are you running two instances?

This is 'currently' normal behaviour... nothing to worry about...   Suggest
you read the following link in the FAQ (and this is more of a VFAQ ATM)  ;-)

The question raises another point for me though, I can run multiple
instances of the client on my UNIX boxen, but not on my Win32 kit.  Any
chance of changes to the Win32 clients to bring them into line with the UNIX
variants (personally I prefer the idea of being able to run multiple
versions with different .ini files on any platform).
