: Solution: Due to changes in the random/entropy stuff, you have to reboot

reboot should be a seprate command.  It should, however, cause the
shutdown scripts to run unless it is run -f.  shutdown implies sending 
all messages to all users of NFS filesystems, which isn't desirable in 
many cases.  At least that's why my fingers type reboot to this day:
