Please find attached a zip file with the problem file.

Using  32 bit version of Beta 39 PovRay still holds on to the memory and 
raises an exception when exiting the program. The 64 bit version works 
as expected.

Same setup: Win7 64bit, POV-Ray 3.7.39b 32bit

Let run for 25 minutes after render finished, exit without problem.

Useing a program to check my CPU temperature, CoreTemp, it also shows memory
useage and core useage (AMD cpu); computer is still busy after POV-Ray3.7 32bit
reports render finished. Memory use continues to drop while core useage is above
5 percent.

After the 25 minutes, could be less I did not stay at computer, The core useage
drops to less than 5 percent and memory useage moves up/down a small amount.

Not waiting for all cores to drop below 5 percent useage gives error if I try to
render again. Mini dump sent (#42) with automatic error report.
I did not try all combinations of wait/re-render/re-start.

No amount of waiting(3+hours) lets me render again without error, "Parce error:
Cannot open input file", this scene only. Trying after error, renders ok.

Next step is to reduce scene to minimum.

Thanks for testing Stephen. I was going to ask you and Miri to check it 
out on your machines. Would you prefer the BSP file (135 KB)? It might 
be easier to reduce the scene.

I'm always interested in how people construct there scenes, and I may even have
time to reduce the scene :-)

I'm interested in other peoples methods too.
I've uploaded it to Scene files in the forum.
