How do I interrupt and cleanup gracefully?

Hello all,

There are a few places in my app where it would be nice if the user 
could use a "command-period" interrupt to gracefully stop my scripts. 
 So, in playing around, I tried this as a starting point in a new button:

on mouseUp
    if the interrupt then cleanThisUp else add 1 to msg
  end repeat
end mouseUp

on cleanThisUp
  put "I'm interrupted" into msg
end cleanThisUp

It does, indeed, stop the script, but always with an error...and I never 
see the final message in the msg box.  This is happening in Rev 2.0.3 
IDE on my Mac (OS9.2.2), but must also work in the standalones when 

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance for any help you can lend!

Best Regards,

Tim Ponn
