Vm shutdown when Qemu-guest-agent enabled

If Qemu Agent optcion enabled on a vm, when qm shutdown VMID command initiated (or the same when i click to the Shutdown button in Webui) it try to send shutdown event to the agent. But, when the agent not respond (because its not running, crashed or whatever), it not try to send ACPI shutdown event (as normally it do, when qemu agent not enabled).

I think the best will be, if agent not responding, after some time send reguler acpi shutdown.

However, i don't know, if this is a normal behavior, or a bug, whatever, because i not find anything about this in the documentation.

Thanks for the advise!
