when you shut-down your system from the finder ( or via power-button ) and the process then
tries to quit processing it's cancled even if there are no modified tabs.

really a minor non-important bug, but i thought i'd report it nonetheless.

this happens all the time? no matter what? processing will always cancel
shutdown? i'm surprised that i've never seen this before.

yep. allways. no sketch running. to test: just open processing and press the powerbutton,
choose shutdown and there you go ..

confirmed. my guess is that it's because we use the Java 1.3 version
(com.apple.mrj) of apple's event handling methods, and need to update to
1.4 (com.apple.eawt).

processing in fact quits, it's just that the shutdown is interrupted.

i wonder if it just doesn't quit quickly enough or doesn't pass some sort
of message. this kind of thing is usually buried in some apple technote...

Is this still a problem in more recent releases?

java 1.5.x
processing 0152

Good, I think it went away when I did the newer platform stuff a while
back, and I just didn't close the bug. Thanks for checking.
