If it is a requirement for any loaded fonts to be unloaded from memory 
for a Standalone to actually quit under Microsoft Windows then a bug 
should be entered at https://quality.livecode.com/ to update the 
Dictionary entries for:

closeStackRequest
shutDownRequest
quit
start using font
stop using font

To note that any loaded font resources must be unloaded to allow a 
Windows standalone to properly exit.
