Standalone still active in Windows Task Manager (XP) after Quitting

BTW, I have noticed this with some of my programs too (both Windows and 
OS X) -- but inconsistently; it only seems to happen occasionally.  I'm 
still early on in my projects, but if this is an active problem, I will 
need to fix it eventually, so let me know if I can help debug this 

(Closing the last window is *supposed to* quit the program, correct?)

Rev Studio 2.2.1, Mac OS X version, building standalones for multiple 
platforms (mostly Win32 and OS X right now).
