- Could you briefly explain which machines are mounting what with NFS?

  The fact that you run the same command many times and it does
different things is Not Good.  A system should do the *same* thing
each time your run that command.

  I still think that the reason your machine does not power itself
off is related to the kernel configuration option.  I would like to
track down the kernel .config used to build the kernel you are running

- Paste output from:  cat /proc/version=20
- Paste output from:  ls -l /boot/config*
- Paste output from:  grep power /proc/ksyms

  Regarding the not consistent shutdown behavior...

- Has this system acted unstable in any other ways recently?
