Can't help you with the segfaults, but to shut it down you should be able to ctrl-alt-F2 to a shell, login, and 'init 6' to reboot. Just in case you didn't already know that.

of course, ubuntu *did install a load of crap, lest anyone ever look at a plain text screen. i had forgotten that three-quarters of a ubuntu install is unconfiguring splash screens and getting rid of crap alternative desktops.

goin back in. pray for me.
