I use 1.4D/i386. When I tried to reboot my system, I typed
'shutdown -r now' then it printed "syncing disk 8 8 5 5 5 5 5 give up".
After the system rebooting, it will run 'fsck' automatically.
If I type 'reboot' instead of 'shutdown -r now', it will have no such
problem. And 'shutdown' under 1.4 release works fine.
Is this a bug of 'shutdown' under 1.4D? Or I do something wrong?
