Is this because you've set "Leave applications in memory while preempted?" 
to "yes" on your "General preferences" page? If not and it only happens with 
WCG tasks the probability is high, that this issue is specific to WCG and you 
should ask for help on the WCG message boards first. If you really think that 
this is due to the new 5.4.10 version downgrade the client to 5.4.9[1] and 
try to reproduce your problem.  

[1] packages for 5.4.9 are here:

Anmut bringen wir ins Leben;
 Leget Anmut in das Geben.
