This change just restores the thread daemon status to the way it was before in JavaFX 14, where `true` is passed to the
`Timer` constructor for "isDaemon - true if the associated thread should run as a daemon."

        if (timer == null) {
            timer = new java.util.Timer(true);

I tried setting `task.cancel(true)` instead of `false` in the `_stop` method, but that didn't stop the non-daemon
