I have three ext2fs based linux systems running 1.3.90 with the same
version of init and it shuts down fine. That's why my assumption it is a
umsdos problem. I am wondering if it is a change I made to inittab.
I replaced the getty on console 1 with a shell script to allow users to
start up X/telnet to our university mail server without an account.
Previously this was loaded at the end of rc.local (ie before the gettys
got started).
