Actually, yes, I did What I failed to read was the linked issue, and what I only found now is what looks like a very nice defect report created by you (

Alas, with me being totally new to the Kindle and not familiar with the software ecosystem underneath, I was unable to recognize the connection earlier.

Thank you very much for this suggestion! From your verbal description it seems as if you added the "quit" item to the tab_item_table, with a distinct icon, and exitReader() as the lambda implementation (didn't do a diff, so relying on your description)

Two things:
1.) My koreader implementation does not come with a "resources/icons/appbar.quit.png" resource; having blindly copied the script in place, this was causing abnormal program termination as soon as I tried to invoke the main tab bar

2.) After editing readermenu.lua to refer to "resources/icons/appbar.home.png", i.e.

- icon = "resources/icons/appbar.quit.png",
+ icon = "resources/icons/appbar.home.png",

I get the expected behaviour - the application terminates. This is indeed a gross hack, but I was too lazy to identify or create a more suitable icon.

So, all in all: Thank you very much!
