Yep, 100% sure.  That was my first thought as well (and I've made that mistake a couple times).  But there's times where it happens when I definitely don't have the application open and haven't had it open for at least the time it takes to change some lines of code, hit the compile button, let the changed file compile, and then attempt to link.  So several seconds at least.
