    Look at line #4.  You're telling PHP that you don't give a damn if
someone tries to quit, you're going to continue anyway.  You storm
trooper, you.

    If PHP is instructed to ignore the user's (futile) attempts to
abort, why should it try to gentlemanly and politely respect a
shutdown function?  Essentially, you're damning it to zombiehood.
