There are no errors or really anything unusual in ptvsd logs here, but this gets logged by VSC in Output -> Log (Window):

[2019-11-21 15:30:23.432] [renderer1] [error] timeout after 500 ms: Error: timeout after 500 ms
    at t.RawDebugSession.handleErrorResponse (file:///C:/Program Files/Microsoft VS Code/resources/app/out/vs/workbench/workbench.desktop.main.js:2798:1003)
    at file:///C:/Program Files/Microsoft VS Code/resources/app/out/vs/workbench/workbench.desktop.main.js:2798:434
    at async t.RawDebugSession.shutdown (file:///C:/Program Files/Microsoft VS Code/resources/app/out/vs/workbench/workbench.desktop.main.js:2796:536)
    at async R.terminate (file:///C:/Program Files/Microsoft VS Code/resources/app/out/vs/workbench/workbench.desktop.main.js:5173:637)
    at async q.restartSession (file:///C:/Program Files/Microsoft VS Code/resources/app/out/vs/workbench/workbench.desktop.main.js:5197:851)

which corresponds to:

So, the problem is that IDE gives us 500 ms to terminate, and after that considers it an error. The problem is that it takes us longer to fully handle a graceful shutdown - in my repro, around 600 ms from the moment we receive "disconnect", to the moment we respond to it.

The error itself occurs when using "Stop" as well, but in that case the only side effect is it being logged by VSC. However, if using "Restart", VSC will simply not proceed if it failed to stop the process. It also doesn't display any error message, so if you don't have the log window opened, there's no indication as to what went wrong.
