#103 Windows shutdown prevented by Task Coach

Windows (458)

I'm still trying to get to the bottom of this one...

Sometimes shutting the PC down fails. Windows closes a
number of tray apps and some applications, but when it
reaches Task Coach it stops (doesn't proceed with the
shutdown). No error is reported. Trying to shut the PC
down again does not work (nothing happens).

The only way to proceed is if Task Coach is manually
quit (File->Quit). Requesting a shutdown then works.

This is an intermittent problem and I'm trying to
figure out what situation will always make it fail so
you can find the cause easier.

    I think onclose method is the cause.
    It cancled the close event.

    I don't know why.
    But when I changed taskcoach.py like this The Bug is fixed.

    class wxApp(wx.App):
    def OnInit(self):
    self.Bind(wx.EVT_QUERY_END_SESSION, self._exitApp)
    return True

    def _exitApp(self, event):

    just only a empty method.

    This bug should be fixed in the latest release of Task Coach. Can
    you please install the latest release of Task Coach and confirm
    that this bug has indeed been fixed? Thanks, Frank
