A standalone will remain in memory if one or both of these two 
conditions are met:

- One or more stacks are still open
- One or more pending messages are still in queue

You might try putting something like this in your app's script:

on shutDownRequest
    answer "Windows: "& the windows &cr&cr& "Messages:" \
      & the pendingMessage
    pass shutDownRequest
end shutDownRequest

That will at least tell you what's open and pending at the time your app 
gets the message to quit.
