Try what Thorben suggested first. But also, just make sure your scripts
are still in order. Even if you haven't willfully changed anything, you
never know. Most problems arise because you think all files are still in
order while they aren't...

does the /etc/init.d/reboot script contain the simple line: reboot -f
(note the -f)? I believe it when you say all scripts are in order, but I
just make it a point pointing this out and have the user check it so you
can be 200% sure that the scripts aren't to be blaimed...(call me
neurotic or annoying if you will, it won't stop me :)
