SimpleHTTPServer, shoutdown and blocked request handlers

Hello All,

I have an instance of SimpleHTTPServer, however when I try to call
"shutdown" on it and there is a request handler that is blocked - the
whole process will block.
It does so even if I run the "serve_forever" method in a deamon

See example code at

Any advice?
