When you start the server the usual way, you have two servers running, 
the "normal" server, and the admin server. You must stop the admin server 
also (it must run on port 8009).

This ctrl-c won't be very harmful as only the admin server will be shut 
down by this.. and usually, it doesn't have to save anything (unless you 
changed the realms, for example).
