Yes, that's perfectly normal.  The current semantics of WM_CLOSE (for
Emacs) is more or less the same as C-x C-c (or C-x 5 0): it waits for
the current command to finish and then runs another command that deletes
the frame.
Yes, I know, but I think there are at least two problems here:

- I do not believe this is the right semantics for WM_CLOSE.

WM_CLOSE just indicates that a window or application *should*
terminate. From the Windows POV, not obeying that message does not
indicate a bug. It just means that the app decided that closing the
window or application was not appropiate.


Does not that depend on the situation? If Windows is shutting down then I think the app should terminate (or perhaps ask, but that is a bad choice according to what Jason pointed out).
