Distro: Gentoo systemd: 242
For a while, on both of the systems I have here, I've been unable to do a proper shutdown (halt, poweroff, reboot). It gets most of the way through shutting down services and such, and then just stops. I have to use magic SysRq keys to finish the job.
I finally enabled debug-shell.service and took a look. It turns out, systemd is hanging at 100% CPU at some point. There are usually 1 or 2 services that still have processes, some of which are zombies (I assume because systemd would normally remove them but isn't working).
This is about all I've been able to determine. What else can I do to diagnose the issue?

EDIT 2: Relevant part of the syslog. I don't see much interesting in there. The only thing that was "stopping" without a "stopped" was Dovecot. However, you can see at the bottom, it did finally exit. This seems to have been just before systemd started hanging. I remember from the debugging shell, Dovecot was left as a zombie. Just a little while ago, I tried shutting down Dovecot (successfully) and then doing the reboot, but systemd still hangs.
