I'm guessing the first process is the one that extracts the perl binary and your sources from the exe, then calls the extracted binary to run the extracted sources as a separate process (to handle crashes better maybe?), and then cleans up the extracted files when perl exits.

At least I seem to recall someone once mentioning some article where someone else said that's how it might more or less work. (In other words, I'm guessing)
