 Replying to [comment:40 gk]:
 > I think we should try to handle this case more gracefully. Ideally, I
 think meek would be shut down again if I clicked the `Cancel` button
 (assuming that's not happening at the moment and the underlying issue).

 Agreed, and the potential for this kind of problem is what led us to use
 the TOR_PT_EXIT_ON_STDIN_CLOSE mechanism. In fact, Kathy and I thought
 this was working 100% of the time... but I was able to reproduce the
 problem you describe on Linux just now. As you suspected, the problem is
 that the meek processes are not shutting down. We are investigating.
