When clicking Start->Shutdown the machine reboots, even if there is a large file
download in progress. Ideally this would be a prompt asking you "Are you sure
you want to reboot, there are downloads in progress?" I can't say how many times
I'll be downloading a 1 GB file and be 90% done when I forget about it and reboot.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Begin downloading a large file
2.Try to reboot windows
Actual Results:  
Download is cancelled and machine reboots.

Expected Results:  
Show a pop-up telling you there are downloads in progress and ask you if you are
certian you wish to reboot.
Personally I think this is silly, but personal feelings asside this is dependant
upon bug 28385 getting fixed. Then you could hook an endtask request up to this
system though I'm slightly worried this may affect being able to force mozilla
to close. Either way marking dependant upon 28385, then this can get looked at.
Depends on: 28385

Setting OS to windows 2000 (reporter's platform) rather than "all". Unix
applications don't get to veto a system shutdown.
