Your problems mean nothing, faced with the fact that hundreds of
thousands of people have had no problems with FC3, including stable
2.6.11 kernels that shutdown when asked (my case) or boot successfully

It's ok that a few folks have issues, that's to be expected.  The vast
vast vast majority have no issues whatsoever doing daily automatic
updates.  *Your* story is anecdotal, not the norm.  It's your
experience that isn't relavent to most people, not mine.
