Hmm; interesting. My machine used to do that under FC2 occasionally, but I've not noticed since I upgraded to FC3. I *think* it's caused by a race condition between starting the shutdown process and switching to the first virtual terminal - when it happens, if you press Ctrl-Alt-F7 you should find the shutdown messages appearing on that virtual terminal. That said, I didn't investigate further and don't know of a fix. -Mark.
