cause gsm doesn't give us enough time to close mailboxes (think imap) and
goes ahead and kills X before we're done. mental note, investigate xsm stuff
and look for ways to stop gsm

xsm has a SaveYourself message which i'm not totally sure can be blocked. 
ofhand, i recall apps delaying gsm mostly cause everybody is doing
saveyourself stuff and the system goes into a swap frenezin. i'm not sure if
the app stalls gsm or stuff just slows down.

if your talking about the system shutdown, no. init sends everything running
sigterm, waits a bit and gets on with it :)
