It does if you close the built stack and go to a new one in the same 
handler.  I haven't tried other variations but.

on LaunchProgram
	close this stack
	go "/data/program.rev" in new window
end LaunchProgram

In this case you may want to just hide it or set the loc to some large 
negative number.  I *think* that if you use the method above then when 
the user closes program.rev the app would quit.
