concurrent.futures.ThreadPoolExecutor.shutdown(cancel_futures=True) cancels the pending futures, but the futures remain in the state CANCELLED and never get to the state CANCELLED_AND_NOTIFIED. Thus they are never yielded by concurrent.futures.as_completed().

If I use shutdown(cancel_futures=True) in a loop of as_completed(), the loop will never finish and the program hangs. Not even Ctrl-C works.

If I use concurrent.futures.Future.cancel() on all pending futures in the loop, everything works as expected.
