Somewhat dated now, but here's the log from FC5-ish system from
the point of clicking 'shutdown' on the gnome menu..

http://people.redhat.com/davej/filemon/09-shutdown

My personal belief is that the initscripts need a way to distinguish
between 'service foo stop' and 'system is shutting down'.
It should be perfectly fine to shut down the majority of services
uncleanly.
killing dhclient, disabling iptables, ifdown'ing interfaces etc
all strikes me as a glorious waste of time.
