I've seen this behavior from the beginning. I believe the problem is that we have to wait for Gecko before we kill the Java UI; otherwise, Android will kill the Gecko process (resulting in an unclean quit). Cleanly closing Gecko can take several seconds - likely due, at least in part, to bug 662444.

CC'ing Brad since he worked on Quit.
