The night before breaking camp, when he was done with his grill, we had no choice but to disconnect it and just sit it aside (outdoors/ventilated) until it ran out. I don't know how common that is, but I would hate to have it occur in a closed compartment.
That has happened. When it does, take a small needle nose pliers and pull up the relief valve or the one in the inside of the thread.

The valves are basicly a schrader( tire) valves. Sometimes you can just pop the valve stem with a toothpick and they will seal. A drop or two of water, WD40 or the like will tell you if you took care of it. I used to refil these during the years where I ice fished regularly. Never tried pulling up on the valve stem...that may work too!
