If in 'Simple Preferences' under 'Playlists and instances' 'use only one
instance when started from file manager' isn't checked the phenomenon
has been known to occur (if you're starting VLC from a file
manager).

If not and on the other hand this appears to be a known bug. How you are
closing the app might be pertinent. 'Ctrl Q' after stopping the video?
Or some other way? Have you experimented in this regard?
