 What kernel?  Do you have CONFIG_PPC_RTC=y and CONFIG_RTC=n ?

well, i'running a PowerMac (OldWorld, booting by BootX), but the problem has been the same.

step 1 was pressing "F13" when trying to load RTC
kernel was loading, system was working, but on shutting down the machine
	the same issue returned. resetting "hard" was the only way out.
step 2 was building my own 2.4.8-kernel with CONFIG_PPC_RTC=y and CONFIG_RTC=n,
	which is working fine.
step 3 was trying to do a simple delete to that "char"-modul from the imaged kernel-modules.
	worked as well  ;-))
