There should be no need to have the session/site manager pop up when you close the last site. The application should be able to run without having a site open all the time. I prefer to maintain WinSCP open in the systray without having to keep one site always accessible. This seems like a security risk to me.

I have a master password set and if I close the last site, WinSCP closes. When I restart WinSCP I have to enter the master password again, this can happen multiple times in a day potentially exposing my site to any keylogger trojans that I might have (!...or clients looking over my shoulder). I would prefer to have type the master password as few times as possible and being able to maintain WinSCP in the systray without a currently open site would facilitate this.
