This was one of the problems PackageKit tries to solve. You can start an
install and do ctrl-alt-backspace and then re-login, and the transaction
is still running in the background. It also stops you shutting down
using a system and session inhibit if the transaction is an a
non-cancellable state.

If you /sbin/shutdown as root, or suffer a power failure without a UPS,
then all bets are off :-)
