Try this:

on closeStackRequest -- confirm whether to close the window
  answer question "Are you sure you want to quit the entire program?"
with "Yes" or "No"
  if it is "Yes"
  then
    lock messages    -- Added line
    quit
  end if
end closeStackRequest

My bet is there's some message firing off during closing that's not getting
handled and so it is interrupting normal quitting operations.
