Summary: Quit And Abort Doesn't.

Initial Comment:
I have a script which runs in a loop like:

while($finish !=1){
  [print some stuff]
  [wait for STDIN to $input]
  if($input eq "q\n"){
    $finish = 1;
  } else {
    [do something else]

and the *only* way it can be quit is by typing q.

It can't be aborted with Command-period: MacPerl 
contiunes to run and has to be force-quit.

If MacPerl is quit with the script still running, the 
same happens: the "Quit (and abort current Perl 
script)?" dialog comes up, but it doesn't quit and it 
doesn't abort.

Is this a bug? Apologies if it isn't, or if this has 
been mentioned. I can't see it in the current list.
