Stand-alone crash on quit enigma

I am testing a MacOS PPC stand alone and I am finding a weird behavior.
Sometimes, and not reproducibly, I get the "this application has
unexpectedly quit" when I am in fact, quitting it (sending the Quit
command). Sometimes not. I've tried adding a close and purge (set to
destroy) all stacks before quitting, but still get this inconsistent result.
When I added tooltips to some buttons, it seems to have gotten worse -- but,
again it seems almost random. It also seems to be related (inconsistently)
to turning a backdrop on or off -- turn it on, then off, then quit
(sometimes) crash.

Has anyone else encountered this problem with the "quit" command? Any
thoughts of what is causing the app to crash when it is quitting?
