After a bit more investigation and looking at the source of
init I understand one half of the problem.
It seems init places a limit on the time rc.shutdown can take
of 2 minutes, this however can be overriden by the use of
kern.shutdown_timeout sysctl, so by setting this to a
sufficiently large value I should be able to solve half my
problem (not had a chance to test yet).
The problem with processes from rc.d not being killed and
thus dying on signal 11 still eludes me however so any help
on this part would be much appreciated.
Sorry for quoting my entire already long original post, but
since I intertwined the 2 issues in the original it was a bit
awkward to snip.
