Bug description:

   * If a tool using the routines defined in bin/dig/dighost.c is sent an
     interruption signal around the time a connection timeout is scheduled 
     to fire, connect_timeout() may be executed after destroy_libs() 
     detaches from the global task (setting 'global_task' to NULL), which 
     results in a crash upon a UDP retry due to bringup_timer() attempting 
     to create a timer with 'task' set to NULL.

   * Fix by preventing connect_timeout() from attempting a retry when 
     shutdown is in progress.

  [Test Case]

   * That is the bad part of this SRU, there is no known testcase.
     If you look at it 
seems often enough, but no clear "do this to trigger" :-/
     Just like the other fix we intend to group with (for xenial).
     Maybe more time in proposed to be a bit safer?

  [Regression Potential]

   * This is in bind and Ubuntu releases for quite a while so general 
     confidence is high. I could think of issue if this - on the backport - 
     works differently as it is using a global variable (urgs) to detect if
     a shutdown is in progress. But overall it should replace a hard crash 
     with a softer early exit that seems ok.

  [Other Info]
   * There is a patch adding "sleep 10" to the code to force the bug,
     but then I'd not test the packages in proposed right :-/

  I wake up the computer.Then It shows a blank black screen with a sidebar 
(favourite apps).I can't login.
  Then I suspend the computer again and wake up it.It shows a error reporting
