Hi all,

connecting (via ssh) to a remote machine I have:

login as: root
Sent username "root"
root at's password:
Last login: Tue Dec  9 17:32:31 2003 from
[root at localhost root]# shutdown now

Broadcast message from root (pts/1) (Tue Dec  9 17:37:38 2003):

The system is going down to maintenance mode NOW!
[root at localhost root]#

on the screen of the remote machine I see:

Telling INIT to go to single user mode.
INIT: Going sigle user
INIT: Sending processes the TERM signal
INIT: Sending pocesses the KILL signal

What should I check?
