In the last few days powerd(1) stopped shutting down the system for
me. Running "powerd -d" prints (and does) nothing when the power
switch is pressed.  It does appear to intercept the switch push though
since the power stays on.  Is anyone else seeing this too?

Seen on an i386 kernel running a slightly edited GENERIC_MPACPI
