Thanks for the explanation and clean-up on my exclusion.

Your suspicion proves correct -- drop to console, PowerButton execs
complete shutdown.  Surprised to see that, tbh -- but not X.

Offhand, any quick info on how to disable the kernel's interfering
recognition/use of the Streamzap PowerButton et al?  If not, I'll chase
it down elsewhere ...
