openscad not closing down properly

Hi, I've been running openscad 2021.1 for some months now, both on my
laptop and my desktop, both running windows 10 64 bit, fully updated.
On my desktop, I have it spread across 2 monitors to give me a decent
bit of screen real estate, with the editor, customiser and console on
one monitor and the part view on the other.
I have two problems I would like advice on-  first is, most of the time
it won't shut down cleanly. Often only one or two of the windows shuts
down, I then have to force the others to close with task manager. Just
occasionally it will shut down cleanly- but only very occasionally.

On my laptop with just the built-in screen, it always closes properly.

Second problem is it nearly always opens with the customiser, console
and editor windows disabled, meaning I have to open the "window" window
and uncheck the boxes. Yet the only window I DON'T want open- the error
window- always opens and it won't let me check the box to stop it.

This is an excellent program that I am really enjoying using, so it
would be great if someone could help me with these small problems.
