OK, supporting that is a relatively new feature, so it's little
surprise it needs more work.  Ken, could you please take a look?

As I understand it, this happens because when the input thread gets
the WM_ENDSESSION message, it posts it to the main thread and goes on
to sleep for 1000 sec, to avoid ending the Emacs process before it
finishes orderly shutdown.  But if the main thread happens to be
inside redisplay, it could invoke one of the function that send
messages to the input thread via SendMessage, which waits for the
input thread to respond.  So we do have a kind of deadlock.

One possible idea is to use SendMessageTimeout instead, with some
suitably chosen timeout.
