It is build 16. It should be specified in the "about this xo" thing in
the preferences.

I have noticed "sudo halt" does not halt the machine -- the screen goes
blank and the power led stays green. Holding down the power button
causes it to shut down with the normal flashing after the delay.

Did yum work at all? In every location I've tried, yum doesn't work at
all, complaining about a repmod. Check the olpc-nz archives from the
last couple of weeks where this was discussed along with a "solution".
It is apparently a problem with redhat and arm and either the mirror
list or ISP meddling.
