Chrome has a similar problem, likely the same since Sparrow is Chromuim based like Chrome.

Assuming a Windows environment, I'd use Task Manager to forcibly kill any sparrow.exe processes that reman running (or possible a reboot of the machine), and then use the feedback mechanism to report it.

Just right click while your cursor is on the bottom bar, and select Task Manager by right clicking on it

You must have Viasat confused with Microsoft.  Who said it was going in different machines?  I'll put it in 2 machines and see if Viasat sends me a cease and desist letter for one of them, then we'll know for sure.

All the bugs removed from Sparrow yet? I'm thinking I might like to give it a try.
