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?)

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:
