One of my systems running 8.1-STABLE started reliably(?) hanging at the
"Rebooting..." step whenever try to reboot it. It's been doing this for
the last month or so. I haven't seen the earlier hang. 9.0-CURRENT on
the same hardware doesn't experience this problem.
I haven't had time to try to debug this, so I've just been using the
reset switch when it hangs.
