Termiation of the process takes a minute or more. Then each of the following processes, "Shutting down interface eth0", "Shutting down loopback interface", and "Stopping iptables" exhibit similar behavior.  Termination of these four processes takes minutes to complete.  Whereas in the past it took only seconds.

I tried using system-config-securitylevel to turn off the firewall.  This had no effect on the shutdown time.  Found that running the utility re-enabled SELinux (already in bugzilla?) and that I need to "disable" SELinux before exiting the utility.  Also disabling SELinux via system-config-securitylevel has not effect.  On rebooting SELinux is still active.  Need to add "selinux=0" to boot parameters in grub. 

I examined /etc/rc.d/init.d/network.  The script on my FC2T3 system still has a reference to /etc/modules.conf.  I think it should now reference modprobe.conf.  Also the script differs from the one on my FC1 system as follows:

114d113
<                       unset DEVICE TYPE SLAVE BRIDGE
119d117
<                       unset DEVICE TYPE SLAVE BRIDGE
125d122
<                       unset DEVICE TYPE SLAVE BRIDGE
130d126
<                       unset DEVICE TYPE SLAVE BRIDGE
133d128
<               unset DEVICE TYPE SLAVE BRIDGE
214d208
<                       unset DEVICE TYPE BRIDGE
219d212
<                       unset DEVICE TYPE BRIDGE
224d216
<                       unset DEVICE TYPE BRIDGE
227d218
<               unset DEVICE TYPE BRIDGE

Don't know what it all means.  Could be just the differencs in the two motherboards.  For all I know anaconda may not have even updated /etc/rc.d/init.d/network.  The file has a Jan 28 date.
