I  believe that is the same error we are encountering. Sorry for the
late reply. sorry i didn't provide a more detailed message. I seem to
encounter every time I am really busy attacking some other problem. 

This image describes my problem exactly
http://wiki.laptop.org/images/8/8e/Xo_freeze_on_shutdown.png

"waiting for X server to shutdown . . 

xinit: unexpected signal 15 "

It looks like there are # of tickets related to this problem. Is there
already a fix somewhere that I can easily apply? ;)
