Like I've been told my self on numerous occasions: read the Mailing List
Archives, all the answers are in there.  Before you ask something on the
list, please read the archives.

But, since I am a nice guy, and don't care much, the answer is: You're on
Windows, and Windows doesn't support copyover since an instance of a
program cannot take over/inherit  descriptors like on Linux systems, so it
just shuts down the program and restarts it.
