No, Maxtor imho.

this had not been the problem (though triggered the other one maybe).

The problem had been that though multiuser worked quite fine,
the kernel didn't mannage to get the reboot done.

even a kill -INT 1 didn't reboot the machine. I could just type
ahead for another few minutes until I killed some of the hanging
sutdown scripts and my ssh and then only hands on helped again.

kill -INT 1 is supposed to reboot even if kill -TSTP 1 does not work ?
