New submission from Roger Serwy:

As a formality, I opened this issue to apply 872a3aca2120 to the 3.x branch. This addresses a concern brought up by Terry in msg187323 from issue5492. Here's the relevant part of the message:

Without or with patch, quit() or exit brings up TK box
(?) The program is still running!
    Do you want to kill it?
    [OK]  [Cancel]
Did this always happen?

[Cancel] causes traceback (not good, regression?)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>
  File "D:\Python\dev\cpython\lib\site.py", line 356, in __call__
    raise SystemExit(code)
SystemExit: None
