I can not help much but I have the same problem. I've found a dirty work 
around that helped me somewhat.

in /etc/init.d/sendsigs I changed line 124
  if [ $seq -ge 300 ] ; then
  if [ $seq -ge 30 ] ; then

Here system waits for any jobs in stop/killed state for 300 seconds to 
terminate. Unfortunately a trinity job (might be hald, can't remeber exactly) 
does not terrminate. Thus the system waits 5 minutes to continue the 
shutdown. I shortened this time to 30 seconds. It now shuts down but does not 
switch off.
