I dunno about that. I have not done a proper experiment
but my impression is that if zope is busy, it takes a really long
time to shut down when the zeo server has died... maybe there
are write transactions pending and zope is patiently waiting
for a zeo connection to handle them. Or something like that,
I don't know.

Haven't bothered to check it out because i so rarely need
to shut down ZEO. It stays up pretty much forever.
