Sounds rather like screen blanking doesn't work quite right, or switching
from X to text console has problems. Since that only happens on shutdown,
I'd disregard it (similar stuff happens with rivafb in 2.4 and 2.4, and it
doesn't hurt).

linuxppc-dev, then. We're still answering most of the kernel related stuff
here, anyway.
