It is very likely , because I had selected all of the packages .

I do not know why HAL uses sudo for such a result .
Actually I am using FreeBSD 7.1 i386 Stable again all of the packages
installed but Gnome shut down menu is NOT affected by selection of sudo .

Now I have checked my 7.1 i386 . sudo is installed and Gnome shutdown menu
for the user ( not root ) included into operator group for USB mounts shows
the menu item shudtdown .

This means that there is  a difference between i386  and amd64 shutdown
rules in Gnome menus .

Thank you very much
