I can sometimes reproduce if I try to umount /home from the terminal
rather than letting the shutdown scripts do it for me, e.g sync; then
/etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server stop; umount /home

However sometimes the machine manages to shutdown on its own.

System appears responsive to Alt+SysReq+..... but doesnt always give the
output expected.

Have twice gotten a backtrace out of the machine which looks like
(written down from photos);

Not sure if this is because I tried to umount the fs to help the machine
shutdown with Alt+SysReq+U.

Once I managed to get a list of running tasks which showed that only;


were running.

Any more information I can supply to help?
