So you had no access to either the view menu to change the setting or the file menu to exit normally? That is odd and it appears you reported it a while ago http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=17323 <http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=17323>

Well a fix for one or the other is going to be a blocker for this release
