Now, my experience with .Net is somewhat dated, but I'm pretty sure it 
re-hangs on your loop, and signaling another abort will break out of 
your loop and continue up the chain of exception handlers.  At least 
once upon a time, there was a very large business which I worked for 
that did a lot of concurrent .Net work, and the standard solution was to 
keep signaling the abort until the thing finally died.
