  you're right.  i was utterly unable to "init 3" from my GNOME
desktop until i added the "DontZap" "false" directive to xorg.conf, at
which point "init" mysteriously started to work, for no apparent
reason.

  turns out i celebrated too soon.  after rebooting and updating just
now, i am unable to "init 3" -- the system just locks up.  so we're
back to being confused.
