Summary0017291: Problems with app restart/reload
DescriptionSince 0017168, several issues with app restart have occurred. But most are random, and not very consistent:

1) Sometimes app reload closes all instances of MediaMonkey, including MM4 and other builds/installations of MM5 that are open
2) Sometimes the background process does not actually close, so when it reopens, you get an error saying the sharing port is already being used by another process
3) Occasional crashes (see logs with ID 40DFB906)
  3a) When the crashes occur, it's constant, and you have to force-close the processes to make the crashes stop
4) App restart, open and close almost always takes a VERY long time, and the window often constantly steals focus during the long restarts

* It would be preferable if there can be a new reload method which only reloads the window (HTML+JS+LESS), to be be used when changing skins and by RefreshSkinShortcut. *
Steps To ReproduceIssues are more reproducible when you have MM4 also open, then use RefreshSkinShortcut to perform a full reload.
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build2294

Two debug logs. First is a successful reload without issues, when MM4 was in the background. I cleared the log then performed a reload a second time, then it forceclosed MM4 and opened with port in use as well as a crash.

Items 1 and 4 appear to be resolved, but items 2 and 3 are still present.

See logs with ID 40DF6157 and 40DFB906; I believe they are caused by the background MM process that was not properly terminated during the restart.
