That's pretty strange. Do you have Capture New Explorer Processes set? (It's in the Window options tab)

I have mine Off and I don't see any of that.

You can also try DTaskManager
and see if it acts weird. Sometimes in Control Panel applets I see the Tabs show up. But I've never seen a bunch of folders.

Try turning off stuff like Recent Lists in the options to try to track it down. You could go on sourceforge forum and report the bug. Just search on and you'll find the project.
