qB stalls when closing #11203

Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System

4.1.7 on W7x64

If on linux, libtorrent-rasterbar and Qt version

(type here)

What is the problem

It's a long time that with the latest version (I don't remember when it started) that qB stalls, and its process is still visible in the Windows 7 x64 Windows Task manager when you close it, either by File->Exit or by Alt-F4.
I always have to end the process in the Windows Task manager, or use taskkill.
That's annoying enough that I dropped on my desktop a .bat file with:

TASKKILL /F /IM qbittorrent.exe /T

to do it more easily.

What is the expected behavior

The process dies wen you quit

Steps to reproduce

File->Ext or Alt-F4

Extra info(if any)

I noticed that the 4.2 alpha version has the same problem on W10. I can remember that this happened sometime ago in the v3 range also.

It seems to stick around forever until you kill it. The bat file is a good idea.

A good solution to exit it is to use Super F4:

That tool seems useful, but personally, I like fewer tasks running in the background even if they aren't high resource consuming. If I start using more applications that have similar issues as qbittorrent, I'll likely use it.
