Well, there are two things.
We used to call ExitProcess(), which (obviously) didn't call
Secondly, the destructors do nothing because they where not (and we
haven't tested conclusively if they are nnow) called when ::exit() is
invoked. The functionality in LogFile::exit() for flushing the log file
on exit is appropriate to be put in the destructor - flush on cygwin
exit. We can't put that there until we are sure destructors execute.

The goal long term is to be able to exit() without worrying about the
log (or any other related caching logic). 

Does that clear up the connection?
