It's not really a problem; you need to get a newer VM (you're using the Unix 
VM, right?).

It is OK for a module not to have shutdownModule() defined. Right now there is 
a test in the code for suppressing this complaint on several optional plugin 

      && strcmp(lookupName, "initialiseModule")
      && strcmp(lookupName, "shutdownModule")
      && strcmp(lookupName, "setInterpreter")
      && strcmp(lookupName, "getModuleName"))
