Shutting down DESCHALL

I am running the linux P5 version of the client. Occasionally, I would
need to go to Windows and so I have to reboot. Currently, I look at the
log file to wait until the last block is done, and then use "kill" to
terminate DESCHALL. Is this the right way, or is there a better one?
In particular, if I just kill my client, will my keyblock be reassigned
to someone else (I hope so).
