Well it turns out that this is a bug that has been around for at least 
three years now. The sad thing is that no-one seems to know what causes 
it. It has been blamed on ClipMan, other xfce4 utilities, xfce4 itself 
and even things in other desktops. I did see something that might 
explain why it happens, apparently QT5 waits for up to 10 seconds when 
exiting in case it is in the middle of receiving something from "some" 
clipboard, even if you are not using the clipboard. Apparently that wait 
is due to the possibility that the length of the clipboard item is 
gigantic and is in the middle of being transferred.

Anyway, it's nothing in Gambas at all. Just another annoyance for people 
who rely on clean output from their projects. 🙁
