The Quit menu item was not available at this point, but closing the window by clicking the red button on the title bar had the same effect.

I held down the options key for over 2 minutes and the dialog did not appear.

Just to be sure... did you hold down the Option key before you launched Photos? Also, what actually happened when you tried it? BTW, the dialogue box should appear instantly so no need to hold it down for a couple minutes.

Yes, I held down the options button first and all that happened was that the Photos app on my iMac opened. There was no dialogue window.

I have a funny feeling that my Photos app got corrupted during the upgrade and downgrade.
