Wizard and Navigation DLLs are being loaded. Why?

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Process Explorer is reporting that my app has loaded the following Actipro DLLs:
I'm trying to improve cold start time, and I'm wondering why the Navigation and Wizard DLLs are being loaded. A grep of "using ActiproSoftware" in the solution yields these:
    using ActiproSoftware.Windows;
    using ActiproSoftware.Windows.Controls.Editors;
    using ActiproSoftware.Windows.Themes;
    using ActiproSoftware.Windows.Controls.Docking;
    using ActiproSoftware.Windows.Controls.Docking.Themes;
    using ActiproSoftware.Windows.Controls.Docking.Primitives;
So why are Navigation and Wizard being loaded?

Hi Brian,

None of our assemblies you listed reference each other, except that they all reference the Shared assembly. You must have included a project reference to the Navigation and Wizard ones. Our code wouldn't auto-load them.

Thanks! You're correct. There were some legacy references hidden in there, and some Reflection code was loading the DLLs.
The latest build of this product (v22.1.4) was released 3 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
