> There is a hang of the procrun service while it is attempting to stop.  It is not easy
to reproduce ( 30%-5% depending on pc ).  Using a debugging to analyze the hang, both the
serviceMain() and serviceStop() threads appear to have run and exited.  I can tell this from
the state of the global variables like gSargs and gShutdownEvents.  Looking at the code, both
are calling reportServiceStatus( SERVICE_STOPPED...).  Typically when either one reports SERVICE_STOPPED,
the main thread unblocks and the process terminates.  This often occurs without both threads
running to completion.  I think this is a race condition caused by the reportServiceStatus()
usage.  The MSDN documentation for SetServiceStatus() states to only call SetServiceStatus()
with SERVICE_STOPPED after all cleanup has occurred and to only call it once.  It appears
that procrun has a race condition where 2 threads will both attempt to report SERVICE_STOPPED
and will likely report this while the other thread is still running.  I believe this is the
root cause of why the Service Control Manager sometimes is unable to stop the service.   
> As a potential solution, I modified serviceStop() to not call reportServiceStatus(SERVICE_STOPPED...)
and to move the SetEvent( gShutdownEvent) to the end of the method.  This change allows the
thread running the  serviceStop() to complete.  Now the only method reporting stopped is when
serviceMain() exits.  With this refactoring to only report SERVICE_STOPPED once (per MSDN)
the hang has not been reproducible.
