Ah, I found the messages that were discussing this and I see this was
supposed to prevent hangs at the ends of runs.  I went ahead and put an
msleep(100) in before the final kill...USR2 in main.c do_recv().

I also finally remembered that the calls to shutdown() were for "Connection
reset by peer" errors and not hangs.  I went ahead and put in a define
SHUTDOWN_ALL_SOCKETS which is only set by configure on Cygwin and call
shutdown when it is set.  Hopefully that will get rid of messages.
