Description rjgoyette 2000-09-01 14:44:46 UTC
I just updated to usermode-1.35-1. Since then, shutdown does not pay any
attentin to the "time" specified for shutdown.  If I type shutdown -r +15
the system shuts down now.  If I give an absolute time, as in shutdown -r
10:00 the system still shuts down now.  This has happened on more than one
system, and has happened using shutdown -h as well as shutdown -r.

Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-09-01 18:42:01 UTC
The ability to run shutdown with arbitrary arguments had to be removed.  The
/usr/bin/shutdown script is provided so that the GNOME logout dialog will still
present the options, but any use of -r will run /usr/bin/reboot, and -h triggers
