Ok, it seemed to take more than 30 seconds, but I was counting without a
cronometer so I might have counted too fast.

However, even 10 seconds is too much. What if you think something is
wrong and want to turn it off? Joe user won't think of killall vino-

If listening is turned off, then it should be turned off, there should
be no doubts about that. Giving it a margin of a few seconds 'on hold'
for current users is understandable, though.

I'll look into it.
