I use the latest Release 20190820 on a Windows system. So when I open a GDS file I get a second window as seen in the attached image. When I close this window layout editor also closes. This did not happen in the Release 20190108.

please adjust the GDS file extension linkage of your Windows installation. You now open a GDS with the installPath/LayoutEditor/bin/layout.exe application, but it should be installationPath/LayoutEditor/layout.bat to avoid this windows and to make OpenAccess file format work.
On most Windows systems you do that with a right click in the GDS file choose properties menu item and adjust 'open with' to layout.bat instead of layout.exe
Alternatively you can just minimize the console window.
