Thanks, looks good to me.

Since I personally don't use the shutdown feature, it's all the more
important that you folks test this extensively.

While adding your patch I realized that the code formatting of the
'case kPower:' was somewhat off, too, so I shifted it to the left.
The final patch now looks as attached.

I guess it's ok if I don't release another new version, it should be
easy enough to apply this patch and test it thoroughly.

So we still have a GO for version 1.4.0 on Sunday :-)
