"CTRL-R" will kill xdm, then you can use "CTRL-ALT-DEL" to



1. can't shutdown with 'shutdown'

Any body experienced this?

If you issue init 0  / init 5 / init 6 /shutdown -i0 -g0 -y ... the
system just pretends not hearing it.
Actually, it heard it -  because the process 1(init) caught the signals,
but after setcontext, it just go pause...

Any suggestions?
