The only reason to run mythwelcome is because you have a frontend and
backend on the same machine. The backend will not automatically shut
down if there is a frontend connected to it, so mythwelcome runs in a
non-blocking mode. If you have a backend on the same machine, you
should not be manually triggering a shutdown. If you don't have a
backend on the machine, then don't bother with mythwelcome at all. Use
the shutdown option on the popup to confirm you want to exit
mythfrontend, or bind a button on your remote to shutdown directly.
