Setting on LR simply tells the program that, when it RETURNS (either by
comming to the end of a cycle or executing RETURN), that it should exit and
release the resources it has claimed.

RETURN actually causes the program to exit.  

If LR is *NOT* turned on when you execute a RETURN, the resources that the
program is using remain allocated to the program.
