Win 7.
Some time ago, I believe under Tutor, it was suggested when quitting to 
move the method I described.
Ah, I see what happened!

I had used this  in something of an earlier incarnation of the program 
when some tkinter code was in use. There was a loop in the code, and the 
quit code used there crept into the finish here.

Yes, no need to fiddle with the finish. Just let it reach the end.
