Yes. I missed your comment here in my recent response. You have the
basic understanding of the problem I was was describing in recent mail.
The other part is that 'stop moving' does not apply in this case. It
best only applies to a moving that is 'spun off' by a 'move ... without
waiting'. In the middle of a move command, it will stop the moving
process, but it will not stop the moving command. The command will
continue to take 15 seconds. (Or so I have observed on OS X.) The
one-second delay is not enough.
(This might be considered to be a bug.)
A move not using "without waiting" is like a 'move .. without waiting'
followed by a 'wait ... with messages' of the same time. Perhaps it is
even implemented that way.
I think you might be happier with "without waiting" and such usage
would not have this problem.
