final screen when waiting for reboot

Description of problem:
When anaconda is exited prematurely, from whatever reason, by clicking the button "Exit installer" in the popup dialog, the computer is not rebooted. The initial anaconda's blue screen (haha) is shown, nothing else. I have waited more than 5 minutes, it just sits still.

Computer can be restarted manually by hitting Ctrl+Alt+Delete (if you know this combination of course). The shell on tty2 also works.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 16 RC4
anaconda 16.24

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Confirm all defaults up to the partitioning step
2. Do the partitioning, write the changes to the disk
3. Hit Back on the next form, confirm Exit installer
4. Wait for reboot
5. Wait for reboot...
6. Wait for reboot.....
  
Actual results:
no reboot

Expected results:
reboot

Well, it's a bug. Of course we care but as far as blockery-ness goes? I'm thinking probably not.

The workaround is pretty easy and it's a minor glitch in a failure mode. I don't think that having to manually reboot after exiting anaconda is a huge deal. Not enough to re-spin anaconda post-freeze if we got a fix, anyways.

I'm -1 NTH on this.
