Thanks, I did not know about that. Does the shutdown handler take care of the WM_QUERYMESSAGE behind the scenes in some way that Emacs can ask the user to save data (which the action that message is supposed to result in)?

No, applications are not supposed to ask the user anything during shutdown if they can possibly avoid it by doing autosaves. See the previous thread on the subject, and the dire warnings in Microsoft's new documentation about the changes they made in Vista to avoid the all too common situation where some mystery program prevents your machine shutting down by either opening a dialog somewhere where you cannot see it, or not opening one at all and telling the system not to shut down at this time.
