7 If you logout as your user(s) so only root is logged in, does lsof show

10 I had a similar problem with my MythTV backend failing to unmount /var.
11 It turned out that mythbackend was failing to shutdown but openrc carried
12 on trying to shutdown. If I make sure mythbackend really is stopped, the
13 reboot proceeds normally, which is much better since I had to go into the
14 loft to reboot the box manually,
