No, I thought of that too. This code part explicitly requests "&& 
ForceShutdown", while the new code requires "!ForceShutdown", so they 
exclude each other.

Moving it down to before "ForceShutdown = false;" will also prevent 
Active() from being called within the MinEventTimeout gap.

The whole shutdown code is an ugly mess, and could use a clean rewrite 
in the 1.5.x cycle. I'll volunteer if that helps...
