Description of problem:
When I try to shut down my system via any method (init 6 or 0, reboot,
shutdown -everything, main menu > logout or shutdown, etc..) they system hangs
as soon as Gnome exits.
For example: I issue init 6 from a terminal window and after a few seconds my
screen goes black like it's suposed to when the GUI exits. A message is
displayed that says "INIT: no more processes left in this run level" then
At this point I can type characters to the screen but I get no real response.
ctrl+alt+delete dosn't work. The system is still on but but nothing works i.e.
can't ping the NIC.
I have logged in in "failsafe" mode but when I try to shutdown from there it
does the same thing.
I also get this when I try to switch to run level 1 (via init 1)

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results: System hangs and siaplays the message "INIT: no more

I saw this problem ever since I loaded Linux with kernel version 2.4.18-3. I
have run up2date and should be (according to up2date) on the latest release.
