Issue with libssh2_channel_wait_closed() after Shell is requested.

Hi folks,

libssh2_channel_wait_closed() returns -34 (LIBSSH2_ERROR_INVAL) after shell
is requested(libssh2_channel_shell()).
It works fine (returns 0) when there is no shell open on channel.

Is there something extra I need to do to close the channel properly with
shell running?
Why cant I follow libssh2_channel_close() with
libssh2_channel_wait_closed() when the shell is running?
