Thinking some more about this, I believe that the correct answer should be
that Kernel/Interrupt Kernel should kill any long-running shell process
that the kernel is waiting on.

This isn't happening in Windows. I don't have access to a Unix box to check
if it's a Windows-only issue, or if it is cross-platform.

I'll raise this as a bug.
