Sounds like an old Win95 shutdown sound file corruption :-)

Are you trying to shutdown using command console or KDE GUI?
When it hangs, can you get another terminal up (CTL-ALT F3) and kill it that way?
What version of X server are you running? Getting the latest xorg wouldn't be a bad idea if it's X that is hanging......

If you would read the README file that came with the 3.3.1 KDE, you would know that it crashes if Root is the last one to log out of it.

Running X as root?! Bad Vemc! Bad doggy!

My system starts into KDM, my first and last user to login/out is non-root : no problems for me.

*"first and last" - what the hell does it mean?
I use Multiple X screens for multiple users. See here for more detail
