I'm sorry I'm very late.  My patch intended to terminate
background processes like ssh-agent without being annoyed with
the pop-up dialog box.

If I remember correctly, normal processes which detouched their
console can receive CTRL_SHUTDOWN_EVENT instead of
CTRL_LOGOFF_EVENT when a user try to logoff or shutdown.

But I can't confirm it on WinXP just now. I suppose I was able
to see it on older platforms.
