Description of problem:
After upgrading from FC1 to FC2 Test 3 the shutdown/reboot process is
taking much longer to complete. Specifically it is taking minutes to
shut down eth0 and loopback. I inserted a date commands into
/etc/init.d/syslog and /etc/init.d/network and got the following
results when shutting down:

NOTE: Please assign problem to proper component. I assigned this to
initscripts only because it's the driver for shutdown.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. From Gnome menu select "Logout"
2. Select either "Shutdown" or "Restart the computer"
3. Click "OK"
Actual Results: Interface eth0 and loopback shutdown takes minutes to
Expected Results: Shutting down of eth0 and loopback takes 5-10
seconds each to complete.

Dump of processes at run level 5
I think I've seen this too (or something similar anyway), on FC 2
final, intermittently. Unfortunately I no longer have the hardware on
which I experienced this problem. It always seemed to happen with
PCMCIA or CardBus cards -- and yanking the card of the socket when it
slowed down made the shutdown proceed at normal speed.
any better with the 2.6.9 update ?
There has been improvement with the newer kernel update. My system now shutsdown
within a reasonable amount of time.
