Linux system powers down when the reboot command is issued.

Linux server.domain.local 2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp #1 SMP Thu Aug 17 17:57:31 EDT 2006 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
RHEL4 Update 8
There is a UPS connected and apcupsd is running.
Loaded the latest SysVinit RPM. A strange side note: I checked 4 different systems, all had the same version of the SysVinit RPM, but all had a different hash on /sbin/halt

That does the same thing as reboot. System powers off and doesn't reboot.
