system hangs if I execute 'poweroff' while hold 'enter' key down.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login as normal user(I haven't tried root).
2. do any(or nothing) operations.
3. type 'poweroff' in console or terminal, press enter, hold the 'enter' key down.
4. system hangs.
Actual results:
I have to hard reset my laptop. :(

Expected results:

poweroff should act normal.

I was unable to replicate this bug. I tried it as normal user on FC5 with same
usermode package. I tried it in both xterm and console. In every case it worked

- can you try it as root by running /sbin/poweroff to make sure that problem is
in usermode and not in poweroff itself? 
- can you provide more precise info about how long you hold <Enter> key or some
other special circumstances?

The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since there have not been any
updates to the report since thirty (30) days or more since we
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA".  If you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and can provide the information previously requested, 
please feel free to reopen the bug report.

Thank you in advance.
