On second thought, this seems more like a workaround than a fix. Maybe it would be better to shutdown the timer to shut
it down in an orderly fashion with the FX runtime is terminated. The `QuantumToolkit::exit` method already calls
`PulseTimer::stop` so that seems a likely place to stop the timer.
