Occasionally when mysqld server is ended by hitting ctrl-c in the console window, it crashes with unhandled exception near the end of shutdown sequence.

C:\src\mysql-5.0.19-win-src\mysql-5.0.19\client_debug>mysqld-debug --console
060314 18:57:52  InnoDB: Started; log sequence number 0 43655

<here a popup dialog occurred with message:
Debug Assertion Failed!

Program ...sql-5.0.19-win-src\mysql-5.0.19\client_debug\mysqld-debug.exe

Expression: _BLOCK_TYPE_IS_VALID(pHead->nBlockUse)

For information on how your program can cause as assertion failure, see the Visual C++ documentation on asserts.

(Press Retry to debug the application)

How to repeat:
run "mysqld-debug.exe --console"
then hit ctrl-c.

repeat if it doesn't happen each time. (normally about 1/5 times a crash happens).

It happens with 5.0.19 and 5.0.18 standard binaries from dev.mysql.com too, but I just compiled a debug version to get the stack trace.

Suggested fix:
fix the cleanup code
