[systemd-devel] FC16 - how to get ExecStop= to be executed at shutdown?

I added the "| logger" b/c i wanted additional proove that the scripts are actually executed, and it seems to work, the start-output is logged into syslog.
But not the ExecStop. I added some more logging and the stop command seems never to be executed.
Also, the VMs take time to shutdown, but Xfce just terminate upon shutdown, definitely does not wait until the VBox service is stopped.
It might be that systemd terminates the PIDs of the VMs directly, but it's currently not executing the ExecStop ... bet I'm missing something.

You already have this property, because After is reversed during shutdown.
Note that when two units with an ordering dependency between them are
shut down, the inverse of the start-up order is applied. i.e. if a unit
is configured with After= on another unit, the former is stopped before
the latter if both are shut down.

Those two lines are wrong. ExecStart is justed exec()ed, not through the
shell. What happens here, is that the script gets three arguments
"start", "|", "/usr/bin/logger". It likely ignores everything but $1, so
it seems to work.
You might use StandardOutput= (see systemd.exec(5)), or just leave the
redirection out entirely, it is now the default to redirect stdout to
