I think this is normal, there's only a limited amount of times you can go back until you get to the message loop or start of the program .
The breakpoint didn't trigger when you closed the tutorial ?

Anyhow, check the breakpoint list and see where it has set the return address breakpoint. Check that it's at a valid code address (so not in some random data/other module)

No, i do not think setting breakpoint at "return address" when you use "stack walk" method is a good idea, in many cases, it give us wrong address, even now, there is no way to make sure eip will jump-back to an address on stack pointer. The best way, i think, use "Step over until ret" intead using set breakpoint method.

about tutorial step 2: there is at least 10 address you can jump back, but in your CE "Run util ret" only have two :D
