I didn't see that yet, but I don't think it's caused by the engine's 
lock because the app_server would then be locked up, too (and wouldn't 
let you switch workspaces).
BTW quitting is usually done via Alt-Q :)

That's simple, the overlay color is currently drawn on screen - but 
that one doesn't translate to the magic overlay color yet for B_CMAP8. 
I think we'd need to handle this case specifically.
