The problem is that this sentence makes "executing" and "stopping"
seem to refer to the same entity, which is not what you want.  As you
say above: the _thread_ is executing, and _we_ are stopping it.

So if my suggestion seems too inaccurate to you (personally, I don't
think that nit will matter, but that's me), then we should rephrase
this more radically.  How about

  infrun:   Thread 1639.22253 executing, about to stop


  infrun:   Thread 1639.22253 in process of being stopped

or even

  infrun:   Thread 1639.22253 was requested to stop, still didn't

Or something along these lines.
