thanks for that advice. I guess that's the reason. I am not sure if the
restarted unattendedly, I could check the log files. But since I am sure
that I did not
stop this instance of msgdm (why stop a running system? :) ) I'll cycle it
controlled exit and manual restart right now.
Since the system runs flawlessly otherwise, there was absolutely no reason
restore it. So, that can be ruled out too.
Thanks again for your advice!
You could look for event 6005 in the Windows System event log. I have a
preset query which does that on the Windows-7 systems.

Windows sends a message to all running programs that it is closing down.
Depending on how many images you have, it could take 20-30 seconds for the
MSG Data Manager to close down completely. A system crash is not an elegant
