iOS Home Button Shutdown not working!

Hi Chris, Jacque, and Stephen,

I built a test stack just to test the
shutdown handler.  I used the
write to file to see if it created
a file and then read the data
back in to see if it worked.

The shutdown does not
appear to be working at all.

If I have a button send the message
to the shutdown handler the
code executes - writes the file, and
reads the file correctly.

I’m reluctant to move to a newer
version of LC than 6.5.2 because
the newer version I tried - LC 6.1.1
made my animations run 4 times
slower.  They looked terrible!

Has the speed/performance improved
adequately in LC 6.6.2?
