Hello Gary,

Moreover I will note that this is a new behaviour. I've been using VLC
for a long time and this behaviour is not normal for it.
It /might/ be just you, Gary:

Using VLC here, and closing without stopping video playback, clicking
the close gadget (top right of window) VLC shuts down, and leaves no
trace of having been run.  IOW, there's no task left showing in the
activity monitor -  in fact, it's entirely possible to watch the monitor
showing VLC shutting down cleanly.

What happens when/if you move the existing config file out of the way?

When I do that, VLC behaves itself. However when I added the faster and slower buttons to the timeline panel, VLC stopped shutting down again. If I remove them again, vlc shuts down properly. When I put them back, it acts up again.
