Last Frame disposed; all threads dead?

Hello all,

When the last Frame is dispose()d, the prompt returns. I assume all
threads die when the last Frame is dispose()d. That's nice, but I am
trying to catch the windowClosed() event. From that, I call my own
quit() method. It is never reached.

It is contrary to Sun behaviour: when using Sun jvm, my quit() method
is called and the prompt does _not_ return.

So: what happens to the EventDispatchThread when I dispose() my last
