It seems that the debian umount used to reckognize -n but doesn't anymore.
I've heard one or two more reports about this. I think we'll either have
to change umount or we just take the umount -n out of the halt and reboot
scripts. The last solution is fine with me (the easy way out :))

I'm Cc'ing this to debian-devel.
