Not to mention... The BTL has to be able to handle a shutdown from one
proc while still running its progression engine, as that's a normal
sequence of events when dynamic processes are involved. Because of that,
there wasn't too much care taken to ensure that everyone stopped polling,
then everyone did del_procs.
