One specific app doesn't quit #477

I have this app called RescueTime that I want to quit when leaving a certain context, but for some reason, it doesn't quit. Controlplane is able to close other apps, but not this one.

If I look into controlplane's log (in the advanced section of the preferences), I see something like this:

23:28.961 -[QuitApplicationAction execute:]
  Terminating all instances of application 'com.rescuetime.RescueTime'

But it's still running. I can kill it manually in the terminal with killall RescueTime so I wonder why nothing is happening when CP tries to close it. Any ideas on what might cause this?

Might be related to #447

There might be some helper app that you've selected to lose rather than the visible app.

There's only one application related to rescuetime in the applications folder, and in activity monitor there's no sign of a helper app existing. I guess somehow the mechanism that controlplane is using to close the app doesn't work the same as killing it through the terminal :(
