Guess not, at least not the obvious thing.  I just restarted a dead
haldaemon and then shut down, and it hung as before.

All the /etc/rc?.d/*vmware links are in place and point to the right
script.  The VMware shutdown messages appear on the console when the
script is invoked.  When the script attempts to shut down vmnet1, it fails
with the "unregsiter_netdevice...usage count 1" error message.
Eventually, the rest of the VMware shutdown messages appear, and then the
shutdown (or reboot) hangs completely and I have to power off.  (It's a
laptop, so no reset button.)

As an aside, the haldaemon service is stopped before the vmware service.
