NOW I read the shutdown man page: <g>

"Init  can only capture CTRL-ALT-DEL and start shutdown in console mode.
If the system is running the X window System, the  X  server  processes    
all  key  strokes.  Some  X11  environments make it possible to capture   
CTRL-ALT-DEL, but what exactly is done with that event depends on  that
