In following this thread from a distance, I'm surprised, Mike, you didn't
have him disable NFS mounts/exports.  Might be good to do that, stay
out of X, and try several shutdowns.

Also, I'm not sure if he's ever mentioned which stock kernel he's using, but
whatever it is, I think there's a new one (latest is 2.4.20-18.7).  He should
probably be running that.
