Well if you pressed stop before shutting down, you weren't really
listening to it now were you? I guess this is a case of me wanting
"strictly correct" behaviour, while most people want the software to
guess what they mean. I'm more annoyed by a wrong guess than by it not
doing what I had hoped - provided it's "logical" in the eyes of the
software. If I accidentally pressed stop, that's my fault, and I will
not blame the software for interpreting it as stop.
