The second console is to send a "shutdown" request to the shutdown port
of the Tomcat server. This allows Tomcat to perform an controlled
shutdown. However, it is a known behavior of Tomcat that it will wait
*forever* for all webapps to "clean up" before exiting.
Usually this situation occurs when a webapp starts a non-daemon thread
which it fails to terminate when shutdown. It can also occur if the
webapp uses RMI and fails to free all the remote objects at shutdown.
Typically you can see threads are the problem by running in debug mode
and checking the Debug window after shutdown to see what threads are
still running. You may need to pull down the Debug window's "View Menu"
(the one next to Minimize and Maximize icons) and select Java -> Show
System Threads to see the threads that are the cause of the problem.
Normally, after the specified shutdown period, a dialog should appear
asking if you want to terminate the Tomcat server. I don't know why
this would not appear for you.
