Well... Actually... It depends on how you open the multiple documents. If you open a new document from an existing window, you get two windows, but it's still one process. Some time ago, we thought we could make Krita use one process all the time, using the QUniqueApplication solution, but that is pretty scary because one crash would kill all open documents...

Please, do, do report all crashes you experience. I think I fixed the last memory bug (reported by Silvio) last week, but that's not in a Windows build yet.
