Just a heads up! I've seen this error on my systems here as well, and it 
had something to with the system updater causing a knotify4 session to 
hang at shutdown. I've issues an online update which fixes this issue on 
our systems here. Can you update and confirm that this problem goes away?

You'll need to apply the patch, and then restart. The patch will take 
effect after you reboot, so you may still need to his ctrl-alt-backspace 
one more time, to shutdown after applying it.
