However this still doesn't solve the problem.  Any suggestions?

I can only guess that it has to do with python being inserted between gtkosxapplication and gtk, because it doesn't reproduce in plain C. In any case, so long as it is only a message that doesn't interfere with orderly shutdown (as seems to be the case), I think that it's OK to ignore. Once you bundle the app, it will show up on the Console log where very few users will see it.

Thanks for the fix, John.

My intention with # 2 is to try and find the source of what causes the crash (with "quit" from the Dock icon" of my real application.  That message was the first difference I could find between Command-Q and Quit from the Dock.

I'll see if I can figure out how to make it actually crash.

Thanks again for the fix!
