A thread that writes to a local file needs some time to cancel itself. This bug was treated as behavioral issue not as a performance issue.

Each thread is givven 0.5 seconds timeout to cancel, increased by 0.1 for every unsuccesfull round. A round is an attempt to cancel all threads. User is seeing a console message where a . or a * apears on the screen at most every <timeout> seconds, indicating the failure or success of a thread to cancel.

This is not faster than just waiting for threads to finish, but gives the feeling of responsiveness and control.
