I see what you mean.

This is odd, as it USED to be done. Someone has removed it.  I did  
notice that the shutdown output had changed, though I didn't realize  

Strangely, hitting ^C can often take a long time. I had always put  
this down to the system flushing buffers. Does the GC cleanup get run  
in the case of a break?
