There's a work-around I use for this type of problem: In
/etc/inittab, replace the line
	ca::ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t3 -r now
by the following
where the file /root/myshutdown is a shell script whose last line is
	/sbin/shutdown -t3 -r now

You can do similar things for the shutdown and reboot commands
(in case you don't use control-alt-delete to reboot).

And do remember this hack when yum will replace the sysvinit rpm.
