I'm using an Acer Veriton T661 system at work and have noticed
unreliable "shutdown -p now" behavior too.
Sometimes the system will reboot instead of powering off, sometimes it
will not power off and sometimes it works fine.
I cant be sure if this started when I got that machine or when I
upgraded to the Xorg that requires dbus and hal as I got the machine
at the same time.
I'd just put it down to the Acer BIOS but I know that Ubuntu 9.04
x86_64 does not have this problem on the same machine.
