Put this in every stack you build, and i mean the "build close issue" part
in the on closeStack Handler

It was in one of the release notes.

Maybe that is holding your build to complete

on shutdownRequest
   answer question "Are you sure you want to stop?" with "Y" or "N"
   if it is "Y" then
      pass shutdownRequest
   end if
end shutdownRequest

on closeStack
   -----------------build close issue----------
   if the environment is "development" and \
         there is a stack "revStandaloneProgress" and \
         the mode of stack "revStandaloneProgress" > 0 then
      exit closeStack
   end if
   lock messages
   quit --triggers shutdownrequestmessage, if not handled then it hangs
   pass closeStack
end closeStack
