Not exactly. I looked into the syslog. I's much better, but I rebooted
to single user mode to rebuild nvidia driver (new beta version) and I
see same error (BUG ... code: ???) on shuting down, mentioning sync,
umount and finally shutdown.

Anyway it's much more comfortable to build nvidia drivers in the console
because previously the BUG lines cluttered all the console.
