I have a related problem:

In GNOME, if I go to System > Shut Down, and click on the "Shut Down"
button, that window hangs (!). I can still click on the X in that
window, and the desktop refreshes, but the system does not shut down.
The other buttons (Suspend, Hibernate, etc.) work though.

The only way to shut down the system is to open an xterm window and
type in the shutdown command.

Does anyone else here have the same problem?
Any ideas how that can be fixed?

(You mean when Lenny becomes stable, right?)
