I think the point is: if the app offers an update on close then it should just do the damn job properly and make sure the program is shut down first... like most applications that have this feature do.

Only if the app allows that; it can block being shut down, like in case they tend to do when there's unsaved work.


If the app shows the "update" dialog before the "unsaved changes" dialog then that's some pretty awful design. Also, the app should be capable of checking it's own state before it shows the update dialog to make sure it can be shut down without problems.
