Outlook 2007 often doesn’t close the data file properly

I live in Outlook 2007 all the time as it’s the hub for my communications with clients and friends.  It is the one tool that keeps me informed, on time and in touch with my colleagues and I love the way it works most of the time.  One thing that has bugged me for a very long time is why Outlook 2007 often fails to close its data file properly when you close the program:

I find that it does this on every computer I use and there’s a 50/50 chance when I close Outlook that I’ll see this message the next time I run it.  It doesn’t really hurt anything other than cause the disk to read a bit as it "checks" the data file but it’s annoying that properly closing the program still doesn’t close the data file consistently.  At least that’s what I have to assume since that’s what it tells me.  What’s up with that?
