Standalone app as Frankensteinian Monster

Hello Devin.  Not having much luck so far I stripped the close handler 
to the following:

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"
  end if
end closeStackRequest

However, the application still does not close when in the stand alone.

I am stumped.
