Kind of a bad user experience if the process does not shut down when the user thinks the program is shut down. I have seen this happen with many processes. Firefox especially suffers.
Hopefull this issue gets fixed I love WMP.
Firefox (especially 3 and later; although 3.5 is a little better) is just about the worst application I've ever seen on the "UI gone but the program's not quite done yet" front.
Don't get me wrong; I love Firefox, but they need to spend some serious time working on shutdown performance. It can't possibly take that long to sync the history database (and if they're waiting to write the whole session at once, what happens if the browser crashes?).
