Under Windows 7 64 bit
LinuxSampler.exe (back end process) does not always close properly after an "end task" message or "CTRL C" is sent from Windows 7. This prevents system shutdown, and also prevents LinuxSampler.exe from being closed by the Task Manager.
To recreate this situation, use Fantasia to load an LSCP script for a few thousand instruments. Play a few of the sounds on multiple MIDi channels. Then exit Fantasia, Then the user presses CTRL C in the Linux Sampler log message window, then the following messages appear immediately:
Stopping disk thread...OK
LinuxSampler stopped due to SIGINT
but after this point the process does not close completely, the window can not be closed by clicking the "X" box, it still responds to window resizing and minimising to and from the task bar. The process is still listed under task manager for at least the next 5 minutes, then it eventually exits.
Could be a problem with the sampler's ASIO driver that may not close the ASIO system automatically when the sampler shuts itself down. Does this also happen when you manually destroyed the ASIO device in the sampler/qsampler/Fantasia before doing Ctrl C?
