Notes 8.0.1 and COM glitch?

Tags: Lotus Notes 8.0.1 Bug

I executed a VBA macro in an Excel sheet that access the Lotus Notes client through COM objects.

This semi-launched the standard client to the point it showed the background screen (see below), with the last used location selected at the bottom right hand corner.

A picture named M2

Even after closing out of Excel, the client stays open in this state in which it does not respond to anything.

The only thing left to deal with this is to execute nsd -kill to terminate this client instance before it is possible to use the client again.
