Right. This /is/ indeed the case. Sometimes there are some processes
that won't be killed normally. I get the warning "use ps axl" .. But
after a very long time the machine does shut down and a ps axl does not
show anything ;-) It does not happen always; so, I don't have a clue
how to investigate what causes the hangings.. any tips?
