Hi,

zc.async's shutdown mechanism doesn't really work with Zope 2's SIGTERM handling: in my case it causes the Async's threaded dispatcher to die in the middle of something:

Exception in thread Thread-1 (most likely raised during interpreter shutdown):
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/ctheune/local/lib/python2.6/threading.py", line 532, in __bootstrap_inner
  File "/home/ctheune/local/lib/python2.6/threading.py", line 484, in run
File "/home/ctheune/gocept/code/...deployment/eggs/zc.async-1.5.4-py2.6.egg/zc/async/subscribers.py", line 115, in start File "/home/ctheune/gocept/code/...deployment/eggs/Twisted-10.2.0-py2.6-linux-x86_64.egg/twisted/internet/base.py", line 1158, in run File "/home/ctheune/gocept/code/...deployment/eggs/Twisted-10.2.0-py2.6-linux-x86_64.egg/twisted/internet/base.py", line 1172, in mainLoop
<type 'exceptions.AttributeError'>: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'msg'

This ends up in the worker not correctly unregistered and thus on next startup:

Exception in thread Thread-1 (most likely raised during interpreter shutdown):
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/ctheune/local/lib/python2.6/threading.py", line 532, in __bootstrap_inner
  File "/home/ctheune/local/lib/python2.6/threading.py", line 484, in run
File "/home/ctheune/gocept/code/webwork.deployment/eggs/zc.async-1.5.4-py2.6.egg/zc/async/subscribers.py", line 115, in start File "/home/ctheune/gocept/code/webwork.deployment/eggs/Twisted-10.2.0-py2.6-linux-x86_64.egg/twisted/internet/base.py", line 1158, in run File "/home/ctheune/gocept/code/webwork.deployment/eggs/Twisted-10.2.0-py2.6-linux-x86_64.egg/twisted/internet/base.py", line 1172, in mainLoop
<type 'exceptions.AttributeError'>: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'msg'

The funny thing is: although this instance didn't get to register it will then on regular shutdown:

2012-03-01 11:54:56 INFO zc.async.events deactivated dispatcher
8da98af0-5c95-11e1-a205-0024e8d50597
2012-03-01 11:54:56 INFO SignalHandler Caught signal SIGINT
2012-03-01 11:54:56 INFO Z2 Shutting down

The first issue (fast shutdown) you can avoid by simply not sending SIGTERM and switching to always use SIGINT. (For some reason zdaemon seems to do that by default when sending SIGTERM to the daemon manager.)

The second issue seems like a bad thing. Right?

Any comments?
Christian
