Guilty as charged. I know how hard the team works to make everything 
work the same on all platforms, so I jumped to the conclusion that it 
wasn't possible on Android. I still think there is likely a technical 
reason, but I believe you when you say it isn't the Android OS.

It's the same behavior on iOS too. I followed the discussion about it on 
the forums and apparently that decision was made because some other 
things will break if it doesn't exit. A few people have worked around 
that to some extent but I'll leave the details to those who know more 
about it.
