There is nothing wrong with the lsof output. From the syscall trace, it would 
seem the Qt4 UI loop keeps waking up, but that does not explain it not 
quitting. It is fairly impossible to track the problem down further without a 
stack trace.

Ctrl+Z works fine here.

That would point at bugs in the Wx and Qt UIs. Try with the text mode or HTTP 
interfaces to see if it still happens.
