Not interested in trying an RC on my only working system (the one I do my
day job from ;) )

FWIW, commenting-out the call to '/sbin/shutdown' at the end of
/etc/acpi/powerbtn.sh did the trick, for now.

If I remember to, I'll try uncommenting it after KDE4 officially revs
in Kubuntu (in 9.10, I guess?) to confirm whether the KDE end of things
are fixed, and hence ACPI does the right thing.

Thanks, all!
