RC3: System Error when using SPAN


In RC3, I'm getting an error message (see attachment) when I have more than one instance of Voxengo SPAN (free spectrum analyzer) loaded in a project and try to open one SPAN after opening and closing another instance of it. I can, however, open several instances of SPAN at the same time if I didn't close one of them before.
The error message says "Invalid window handle" and opens the wrapper, but not the plugin interface (see attachment). If the project's busy, it can also freeze FL (just lost half an hour of work :( ).

I think it didn't happen before RC3, but I'm not 100% sure (I spotted the error while remixing an old project, because you don't need to load more than one visual plugin since 7.4). It doesn't happen in FL 7.

I've also attached the project with several SPANs loaded (I removed all other plugins). I can also reproduce this error in a new empty file.

Here's what's needed to produce the error:
1. Open one instance of SPAN.
2. Close it.
3. Open a different instance of SPAN.

Hope you can reproduce and fix it! :)
