Thanks dh and Xerxes. The one where one manipulates the display time of each frame as in Export["~/Desktop/test.gif",%,"DisplayDurations"- >ReplacePart[ConstantArray[0.5,Length[%]],3600,-1]] is a clever work-around. The help files don't really specify that AnimationRepetitions->1 would work for Export. It does work for built-in the animation commands. Anyhow, the problem is solved for now. We should all write to Mathematica and let them know about this bug.
