Attempts to shutdown Xubuntu 12.04.3 hang. I remote in using ssh.
Suggestions on how to remotely shutdown and not have a hung system are sought.
(The system was hung for two weeks after I assumed that a remote shutdown had
succeeded when I left town back in December!)
I can sudo reboot from a remote ssh session but not do a shutdown over ssh.
When try to shutdown over ssh from another PC, afterwards I see, on the PC
that I tried to shutdown, the following:
First, the GUI / desktop closes and the shutdown progresses to this (as
literally as I could transcribe it, including "<info>"):
stopping Network connection manager wicd
Start virtual private network daemon(s)
No VPN is running
Asking all remaining processes to terminate
modem manager : <info> ModemManager (version 0.5.2.0) starting
modem manager  Could not get the system bus. Make sure the message
bus daemon is running! Message: Failed to connect to socket
/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory
This modem-start / no such file sequence repeats twice with different numbers
in square brackets, followed by a final modem manager starting message.
Then, a hung PC with no response to ctrl-c or ctrl-d. Had to do a ctrl-alt-del
to restart the system.
