[PD] how to kill all [shell]'s child before quitting Pd

I'm calling a new instance of Pd inside a Pd patch with [shell]
but I notice I can't quit the main pd instance if a process is still
running inside the [shell]

the GUI hangs until the process ends (until I quit Pd)
since the child pd is running without gui,

1) is it possible to exit a running process via [shell] ?
for example how could I send a ^c (ctrl+c) command ?

2) moreover, how to trig it when I press ctrl+Q or menu quit ?

3) the [noquit] abstraction gives me a tcl error : "can't rename menu_quit
command doesn't exists"

I'm running pd vanilla 0.44-2

thanks for help
