Desktop Software v6 won't shutdown properly

When I shutdown (Device > Exit) the BB Desktop Software (v6.0.1.18) it seems to close down normally but then will not restart.


If I look in the XP (SP3) Task Manager the process Rim.Desktop.exe is still listed although it's not doing anything.


If I kill off this process I am then able to restart it normally.


I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times and also installed it on a brand installation of the same XP and I get the same results.


Anyone else seen this and been able to fix it?
