Re: Can't stop log

After I booted my FC11 test system and did an update, I tried to shutdown and got this failure. I clicked system->shutdown->shutdown_button and the system hung. An investigation of the log shows that attached behavior.

If I log out and click the shutdown button it works, so it seems to only happen when using the button while logged in.

Running 'shutdown -h' as root also works.

I chased ConsoleKit, gnome-session, and a few others when I saw this bug on my systems. I didn't get anywhere. It's a challenging bug to chase, because it doesn't always happen. Although I think it may be more reproducible when going from runlevel 5 to runlevel 3, maybe because if something's broken, it gets killed anyway in runlevel 0 or runlevel 6 when shutdown or reboot actually shuts down or reboots.

Anyway, I've seen people ask about this bug on this list (with various subject lines, but always essentially the same thing). I've seen other people file bugs and get them marked as duplicate. I've seen people add themselves as CCs on existing bugs. Even if I'm really stupid, I'd think at least some of the people interested in this bug are pretty bright. The fact that nobody seems to have a handle on exactly what's going on is kind of scary.

For me, the power button and ACPI still team up to provide a graceful shutdown, but that seems a bit inelegant.
