Help needed with Windows Service in Python

I am attempting to create a Windows Service in Python.
I have the framework (from Mark Hammond and Andy Robinason's book)
running - see below. It starts fine - but it will not stop. :(
net stop "Python Service"
and using the services GUI both leave the services showing it as "stopping"
I guess this means SvcStop is called but it is not enough to get it out
of the machine.
Does anyone know why not?
Python 2.7 with win32 extensions, sunning on Windows 7.
the (complete) source code is
# service.py = testing services and Named pipes
_svc_name_ = "Python Service"
_svc_display_name_ = "Test Service in Python"
def __init__(self, args):
self.hWaitStop = win32event.CreateEvent(None,0,0,None)
if __name__ == '__main__':
