Right.  As the other person suggested, if while sitting at "A" and
logged into "B" I then issue a "shutdown -r now" command, machine B
will reboot.  If instead I log in as just described, then walk over to
B and shutdown using "K -> Leave -> Restart" I get the message box
described in my previous post.

I found some discussion on this on the bug lists, but those
discussions related to the timing of the message, not how to disable
it.  It does seem to be buggish as the message occurs well into the
shutdown process, and selecting cancel requires entering the password
