Hi: I use HALT from the logout bar to shut down my system.  I used to get
prompted for my password to shutdown while using RH6.2.  Now that I have
upgraded to RH7.0 I no longer get the passwd prompt.  I am not sure if this
is  related to the problem or not, but when I Halt I can see all of the
process shutdown on th screen.  Then as soon as it gets done shuting down
eth0, eth01 it freezes.  The only way to shut it down from here is to kill
the power.  

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  The system runs through it shutdown then freezes before
shuting off.

If it's completely hanging when it shuts down the ethernet interfaces,
that sounds like a kernel problem.

This is a bug versus a very old tree and contains no detail that is still of use
to us, so I am closing it.
