Uninstall an AppleScript application from within Itself
Authored by: ChaChi on Dec 11, '09 08:56:11AM
I have a "Quit Finder" menu item, just like any other application, that I added to the end of the Finder menu using the following defaults command:
defaults write com.apple.finder QuitMenuItem 1 ; killall Finder
or you can use a basic AppleScript:
tell application "Finder" to quit
You should consider yourself extremely lucky that you don't run into more bugs in the Finder. I have 5 open bug report tickets with Apple at the moment regarding Finder bugs alone! Like I said before, the Finder is decent but has a long way to go still!

interesting. again, out of curiosity, what are the Finder bugs you're seeing? I'd like to see if I can replicate them.
