drkonqi disables shutdown.

Please note that the problem I report INHIBITS shutdown making the 
machine unreliable on shutdown operation. Typically me and I guess 
everyone else, expect the machine to shutdown without manually 
monitoring/intervention the process.

Well, Since the launch of drkonqi is AFTER kde exits (well at least 
that's how it looks) but X11 is still on, I can not see the dialog 
screen. What I did was: shift to text mode and then send kill signal to 
drkonqi. Otherwise the machine is hanged. Eventually I removed drkonqi 
and set a link to /bin/false instead.

Sorry if you felt upset about this message. Thought we all should be 
more careful not to wind up like the bad guys.
