I would like to have a function be called at the very end of the reactor

I have tried with the statement in the subject, where self.logout sends
a packet via UDP (self is an instance of a class derived from

But this seems to be not allowed.
I obtain:

Traceback (most recent call last):

  why = getattr(selectable, method)()

  data, addr = self.socket.recvfrom(self.maxPacketSize)
  exceptions.AttributeError: 'Port' object has no attribute 'socket'

File "...\twisted\internet\udp.py", line 207, in connectionLost
File "...\twisted\internet\protocol.py", line 490, in doStop
  assert self.numPorts > 0

This means, in short, that in a shutdown event I can't use the reactor?
I think that this should be documented.

Thanks and regards  Manlio Perillo
