Dell poweredge 850 hangs on shutdown -p

I have a Dell PowerEdge 850 that hangs when I try to power it down
using "shutdown -p now".  Otherwise it seems to run splendidly.

I reaches the point where it says: "Powering the system off using
acpi" and then just sits there.

Powering it off by just pressing the power button works perfectly.

It's running a minimal installation from a FreeBSD 6.3BETA3 cd, which
I burned 11/6/06.

I've pasted the system's dmesg output below.

Has anyone seen this before?

Does anyone have any suggstion on how to whip it into shape?
