A thread doing repair by keycache is not killable

How to repeat:
Corrupt a large table such that it needs repair by keycache
(ours was 4.7GB)

Try to kill the thread.

(Then, for extra fun, try to shutdown the server. It won't shutdown and you won't be able to connect to find out what's going on except by using low-level tools like truss and pstack.)

Suggested fix:
Ensure that *all* actions within the server that may be long running can be killed.

I have filed this as a feature request for a future MySQL version.
