Just a little behind-the-scenes...

When I'm going to do any maintenance like installing the Microsoft patches, my first step is to stop the web services before installing anything. There's usually a very good chance the patches are going to stop/start web services, especially when doing .NET framework stuff, so I just avoid it and stop it altogether.

I suppose if the timing is just right, I could stop the web services and something that was "in progress" could get killed off prematurely.

Typically though, when you stop the web server, it lets any outstanding requests complete first. The only time it would kill anything is if it took longer than the timeout period to complete (something like 30 seconds... I forget). I don't always pay attention to how long it takes to stop, but it's entirely possible.
