Hi Dahiya,

Sorry for the late reply. I have seen this before. In fact, I 
asked the same question some time ago.

I'd close all stacks before quitting:

on shutDownRequest
   repeat for each line myStack in the openStacks
     close stack myStack
   end repeat
   pass shutDownRequest
end shutDownRequest

You may also have to unload any externals.
