I think that you have the benefit of an "experienced / insider viewpoint", 
and I won't be at all surprised if the official response is the same - i.e. 
working as intended, deal with it as a feature request.

But from an "outsider" viewpoint - i.e. new-ish user - it sure looks to me 
like a bug.

I run an IDE, I load / run an application within it - and when the app does 
"something (in this case, tries to quit), it takes me all the way out of 
the IDE.  As an experienced user of IDEs/debuggers for various languages, 
I'd say nothing that an application being run under the IDE does should 
cause the IDE to quit; this is almost like having a badly behaved 
application cause the OS to quit (oh - wait a minute - this is Windows :-)

And - perhaps more importantly - I think if a non-runrev-user runs the 
Player, and then runs an app from within it, they will have the same reaction.

If the support team turn it from a "bug" to an enhancement, I won't be 
surprised or upset - merely a bit concerned about the possible effect on 
the new class of potential users.
