I just took another look at the usermode package and the shutdown man page
myself.  The man page is for /sbin/shutdown, not /usr/bin/shutdown which
is part of usermode, and is a symbolic link to
/usr/bin/consolehelper.  The consolehelper man page is the one you want to
read :)

I'm not really sure what the shutdown.allow file does, but AFAICT it won't
restrict local users from using /usr/sbin/shutdown.
