Right, there have been some reports of that.  But debugging that old script is
off-topic for this thread; the question we need resolved is how do the powers
that be wish for the GSM modem to actually be powered off when the phone is shut

Whatever solution is determined to be acceptable will be difficult to debug, the
problem being that a) the phone is shutting down so we have only seconds to
gather debug data, b) we're twiddling with the GSM modem mux which means that we
lose the console to the neo during that time.  None-the-less, I'm pretty
confident that we can code something that works reliably for any solution deemed
acceptable.  But we first need to figure out what is deemed acceptable before
what might be a considerable effort is invested.
