Hidden Instance of EXCEL.EXE will not close

Does anyone else experience this? I experience it in both Xcelsius 4.5 and 2008

When you first start working with an Excel model in your dashboard project, you can see a new process of EXCEL.EXE in your Windows Task Manager.

After I close Xcelsius, the EXCEL.EXE process does not close.

When I shut down my PC at the end of day, I get prompted by this hidden Excel to save a whole bunch of files name im0.xls, im1.xls, im2.xls, im3.xls (file names are a bit different in 2008 version). I assume the "im" stands for Infommersion, who owned Xcelsius before BusObj did.
