Subject RE: Window MPM debugging

Bill actually explained this on list already.

The problem is that we create 2 events in the Windows MPM, one for
restart, and one for shutdown.  In the version you grabbed, we are
creating the restart event and the shutdown event is not being created.
Which is why shutting down doesn't work.

Once Bill found that bug, he re-arranged the code to create the shutdown
event first.  His reasoning was simple, it is MUCH better to allow
people to stop the service and not allow them to restart, than it is to
do the opposite.

The real bug is that we are only creating one event the question is
which event is better to be creating.  Personally, I agree with Will,
letting people shutdown is actually much more important than allowing
them to restart.

However, if you want to get back to the same state, just switch the
order that we create the events.
