Could be a couple of simple causes which I've discovered by beating my head
against a wall:
1. Command prompt window open with the current directory == ${archive} (or
one of its subdirs)
2. Windows explorer open and the currently selected folder == ${archive}

Point 2 doesn't seem to happen consistently, but it does happen to me
occasionally.
