It's loaded into memory, but there's no window for it. (Just like a 
stack whose destroyStack is false, after you close it... it's still 
in memory even though it's closed.)

There's some stuff about this in "About windows, palettes, and dialog 
boxes" under the section "Open, closed, and hidden windows".
