Greetings you all,

I'm not sure that what I'm about the say does really work, but i've
tested it successfully in 3 RedHat 6.0 boxes with (1.14 - subrev 4).

If you use linuxconf  in order to create / edit any user
system priviledges, you may notice that if you set a user to have Denied
priviledges on the shutdown command he can stil be able to reboot / shutdown it.
It seems that linuxconf isn't dealing correctly with /etc/pam.d/reboot

PS: sorry for my rubish english
