I tested the refered flash file using gnash 0.8.11~git20150419-1~bpo8+1 on Debian Jessie, and pressing ^q worked just fine for me, both using -M gst and -M ffmpeg. The gnash window stopped quickly when I did.

That is, possibly related to Bug #44079

Test movie: http://strk.kbt.io/tmp/htf_sweet.swf

Steps to reproduce:
1. Run gtk-gnash http://strk.kbt.io/tmp/htf_sweet.swf
2. Wait for the animation to start (after "Hang in there, kids")
3. Hit ^Q (quit) or ^R (restart)

Expected behavior: gnash quits or restarts

Actual behavior: the gnash window stays mapped on the screen, no interaction is possible (menus, right-click menu). Display refreshes still work, and for the ^Q (quit) case audio still comes out.

Waiting enough time the movie eventually unlocks and continues (for the restart case) or quits (for the quit case). I suspect this is something to do with the time tap.

This bug was experienced as of commit 889485d16a2ddca73bffb4622f0e9360a0267e5d

I don't know if any previous version worked fine.
