Oops, I didn't see that question. The answer is: reboot.
The hive is loaded but never saved or unloaded (see my
other mail).

The current implementation of `load_registry_hive' only
loads the local hive, it never tries to load a server
based hive. This is for a later change...

First I would like to find an effective solution, how to
determine that the current exiting process is the last
process of that user on the machine.
