Why does the C441 show small current on two phases when the motor is not running?

Connection of a control power transformer (CPT) can sometimes cause the device to read very small amounts of current on the two phases that the CPT is connected to. This may be more evident in the smallest frame of the C441. In some cases, this current will go away when the circuit breaker is opened, but then reappear after a motor run.
