It appears as though the problem is that shutdown() blocks waiting for the serve_forever loop to terminate, which won't happen as long as the process is blocked on shutdown.
I'd like to propose that the library be changed to eliminate the block. Shutdown() can set the flag and then return. This should allow the handler to return and the serve_forever loop to notice that it has been asked to cease operations.
Failing that, I think the library needs some other way to exit a socketserver.
