System crash when swithing to text-console
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
i recently got my wife a new machine and installed stable on it.
At first run it was all smooth but after the latest upgrade, which i
performed after installing a second HD, the machine won't shutdown properly.
I tracked it down to the following behaviour:
... up to here all is good!
The misery begins as soon as you try to switch from X to console
either by Ctrl-Alt-F1 or induced by system shutdown
the monitor goes black and the sysem will not react to any input
not even to SysReq Keys
after about a minute or so the system powers off and immediately on
again to boot up normally (with the usual warning about HDs not having
been unpountet properly)
I have no idea so far as to where I should start investigating.
The logs don't show any abnormality as far as I can say.
thank you very much
