Hmmm. There was something different from normal. Usually I unmount all partitions before closing down, but this time I had left one mounted.
The /etc/rc.d/rc.shutdown script attempts to kill any processes running on that partition (then later unmount it). take the example of /dev/sdc3 mounted, this is executed:
fuser -k -m /dev/sdc3
However, there are no processes running on /dev/sdc3, as 'fuser -m /dev/sdc3' confirms.
However that line causes a weird event to occur -- X immediately restarts!
I have put a workaround into rc.shutdown:
However, I really do need to investigate this some more.
Note, you will need to login as 'anonymous' to see the actual changes made to rc.shutdown.

Attempt to mount a UDF CD using mount icon doesn't work. Opening a console and issuing "mount /dev/dvd /somedir" does work. I don't think the '-t udf' parm was required to get it mounted.
Does the mount wizard need a review ?

Oops, meant UDF DVD.
