Bug#622750: general: "shutdown -r" does not reboot

I'm not a debian bug handler but...

try "shutdown -t0 -r now" and re-submit if it doesn't work (I think specifying time is required?)

when I am logged in (by ssh or on tty1-tty6) as root on the machine where I am
writing this from and enter "shutdown -r now", the machine does not reboot,
but instead I get the message:

Give root password for maintenance (or press Control-D to continue):
