the same still here since updatd to F15

the ExecStop is called but systemd DOES NOT wait
until it is finished leading to all virtual machines
are killed hard while "systemctl stop vmware-default.service"
does supsend them perfectlly as long it is not combined with
any sort of shutdown

[root at srv-rhsoft:~]$ cat /etc/systemd/system/vmware-default.service

ExecStart=/bin/su -c "/scripts/vmware/vm-default-start.sh" vmware
