There's a pull request already, Panos was on it immediately. It will be 
fixed in the next release. Apparently the problem was reintroduced 
accidentally after it was fixed the first time.

Android has a swipe-to-kill also but a clean quit is better, of course. I 
do understand about the complexities of the Android OS, and Ralph was right 
that the problem was a null pointer.
