shrug-l: GIS Concurrent License being used without permission

Does the machine possibly have a Python Script that might be set to run
that requires an ArcInfo License? Or is it possible it grabs an ArcInfo
license because an ArcEditor is not available? Just Brainstorming.

The division I work for has 1 concurrent ArcInfo license and an array of
concurrent ArcEditor and ArcView Licenses. 

Under ArcGIS administrator only one machine has its software product set
to ArcInfo. Prior to the installation of 10, only this machine was able
to access our one ArcInfo license. 

With the installation of 10, one of the machines on the network whose
software product is set to ArcEditor now seemingly randomly checks out
the ArcInfo License even when the program is not being run. Moreover,
when you run the program on this machine it checks out an ArcEditor
license and does not use the ArcInfo license. It only turns in the
license when the computer is restarted. 

ArcInfo workstation is not installed on this machine and borrowing is
turned off on all machines.

Any idea what is going? Thanks in advance
