I've also recently updated and encountered exactly the same issue.
Today, after spending the week trying different settings with EIT etc.
to no avail, I sat down and worked my way through the issue.
Basically, and perhaps somewhat ironically, it is mythwelcome that is at
fault. At start-up one of its connections is announcing itself as
'Playback' which blocks the shutdown.
It doesn't appear to be anything in programs/mythwelcome/ itself (that
just connects as 'Monitor'; and will correcly do just that if the
backend is restarted underneath it).
So I can only assume it something in the shared routines it is using at
start-up (Haven't looked into that). I've worked around the issue with
just putting a very early call to ConnectToMasterServer in
Attached are some diffs: the ConnectToMasterServer hack, and some
alterations to/additional logging from the idle checking routines that
made it easier for me to see part of what was going on.
It is early days, but from what I can now see in the logs - My box
should now start shutting itself down again...
Hope that's of use to someone..
