it seems you have to get rid of the line or place somthing in
ca::ctrlaltdel:/bin/echo "CTRL-ALT-DEL Disable"

that should work, after a reboot, but you might want to go a little further and run a command instead of shutdown, e.g. run "logger" to say someone hit that key combination:

ca::ctrlaltdel:/usr/bin/logger ctrlaltdelete attempted
