Closing stdout is a different matter. But I agree with you, it may be

did not occur to me until today. And even without the workaround, it's
not that bad, because usually the shutdown does succeed.

Thank you! I plan to keep using 1.4 at least until 1.5 supports
DVB subtitles (which I hope it will support at some point) or UTF-8.
