Bug Description

This example responds to SIGTERM (and SIGINT) by calling exit() - without taking any precaution to prevent other threads running simultaneously. This can lead to a SEGFAULT.

I got a core by running:

$ while bin/mir_demo_server --test-timeout 1 --test-client bin/mir_demo_client_scroll ; do :; done

Which eventually failed this way.
