I get that message in release 2.4.13 in Windows 7 too.  There are two
things that trigger it in my case.  One is that I accidentally created a
Template stock that I cannot delete, and the other is a stock that has
been delisted from the NYSE for going bankrupt and being valued in
pennies per share. 

I feel as you do that a summary message upon completion would be adequate.
