Most annoying bug: Cubase hangs on exit

This is the most annoying bug for me. It has been in Cubase since around version 7 and still not fixed. On larger projects Cubase doesn’t close on exit, just hangs, I noticed the memory doesn’t get unload when this happens.
This is extremely annoying especially when I need to close one project and reopen another with a client sitting next to me.
It’s about time this gets fixed. This is ridiculous to ignore this bug for so long.

It doesn’t even have to be a large project. For me it happens also very often!

Cubase just doesn’t close properly, instead it freezes and I have to kill it with the task manager. I’m afraid that some day it will corrupt an important project file or something while doing it.

For me, This problem is caused by my MOTU Micro Lite USB midi interface hanging. This is intermittent of course. If I unplug the Micro Lite Cubase will shut down as expected. I can also recreate this with the Midi-OX app. So maybe something else is causing Cubase to hang. Probably worth a moment of thought anyway.
