Description of problem:
After running pppd and shutting down pppd attempts to stop iptables
using /etc/init.d/iptables stop hang at modprobe -r ipt_state. Cannot
kill -term or kill -kill the process. A second attempt to run
iptables stop will hang.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run pppd to start up ppp session
2.stop pppd process
3.attempt to stop iptables or shutdown system with either -h now or -r
now. Shutdown hangs at stopping iptables. Stopping iptables in on
running system results in hung modprobe -r ipt_state process.
Actual Results: Hung system waiting for shutdown or hung modprobe -r

Assigning to kernel.
This seems to be similar to #144101.
Cannot access bug 144101 to verify if these bugs are alike. Please
add me to access. Thank you.

Close bug, I have stopped using FC3 and will revert to RH9 due to
multiple problems with FC3 and my system. Will be changing to another
distribution that is more stable than FC3
