It's been this way since EIT scanning was introduced.
The scanner scans continuously until myth explicitly tunes to
a channel for recording. There is currently no way to determine
that we have collected all the available EIT data on a transport,
so it would be premature to try to add code to terminate scanning
so that shutdown can proceed.
