So you're basically saying, "certain programs" run super slow on your
host machine if started within 5-10 minutes after closing VMWare Player,
with "certain programs" including both POV-Ray and the VMWare Player itself.

Well, then by the very definition of the word that's not a POV-Ray
specific problem.


More of a VMWare Player specific problem. Or maybe even a more generic
problem. My guess would be cleanup of resources used by VMWare Player.

But whatever the reason, it is most certainly not a bug in POV-Ray, and
therefore off-topic in this newsgroup.
