I'm not sure whether we should go that far. In case that several good 
reasons exist that block shutdown it would be nice to have them on 
screen all together. However this probably involves introducing new 
dialogs and all the skin stuff behind that.

Meetoo. Found it by studying the old sources doing what-happens-when. 
Shutdown got stuck while playback, and it seemed that if no key is 
pressed meanwhile, the shutdown would continue at end of playback. Tried 
it, and it actually worked. ;)
