Bug#622750: general: "shutdown -r" does not reboot
dang I didnt' read all. you should only see that for entering runlevel
one. are you sure you didn't reboot ?
sulogin prints that message
mabye it's because you specified no time?
it is remotely possible new init scripts somehow get you to runlevel 1,
init(1) invokes sulogin(1), and reboot is never executed.
you didn't delete any rc.d scripts in /etc/ did you?

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