What machine do you have? Have you tried to use poweroff with some
newer version of usermode?

Comment 2 Airbete 2004-10-07 16:46:39 UTC
It's been 1 1/2 year since I posted this bug! I upgraded the OS 2
times in the meantime. I don't have this bug anymore (currently on FC2).

AB, sorry for the 1.5 year of time. I was reassigned recently to
usermode package, so reply times should be much shorter now for new bugs.
