Yes it DOES work, using closeStackRequest. Not sure what I was seeing before, but closeStackRequest DID trigger. 

That is great in the Development environment, but it does not work in a standalone. I think what we determined in prior posts is to disable the red close dot/square and have some other means for quitting the app.
