Yes, there's still a logical bug in it...

The 1.3.49 code shuts down if the recording shut down is confirmed *OR* 
if the plugin shut down is confirmed. Unfortunately, if no plugin has 
activity, this counts as confirmed, so VDR will shut down no matter if 
recording shut down was confirmed or not.

The attached patch reverses the logic a bit, and shuts down if 
recordings *AND* plugins confirm. UserShutdown is set up first, so that 
any non-confirm can leave with 'break'. If all tests pass, ForceShutdown 
is set too.

I've tested all variants I can think of, and it seems to work. More 
testing is of course welcome, so we can mark this one fixed before Sunday.

Btw: There's a slight change in behavior since 1.3.46: Before, a simple 
shut down without confirms did not set ForceShutdown=true, since then, 
ForceShutdown is set true even if no confirmation was necessary. 
cPluginManager::Active does not differentiate between confirmed, denied 
and 'no activity'. The new way is slightly more aggressive, but seems 
more consistent and I don't think that it has bigger negative side effects.

(1.3.49 can shut down while cutting, 1.3.46 can shut down while cutting 
only if also a recording is running, and shutdown is confirmed.)
