I have the shutdown problem too, it hangs at "will halt now" and that's
that. Then I just have to manually hit the Stop button. Otherwise it
works semi-okay except after launching Rev or MC. The stacks actually
run fine for a while, but the whole system becomes unresponsive soon
after. The mouse moves, but no mouse or keyboard input is accepted.
Instructions I found on the web say to install on Parallels using "Other
2.6 Kernel" so that's what I did. I also had problems with installation
and had to build a couple of packages manually after rebooting.
I wish I had not updated to Parallels 3188 -- the older version was rock
solid. I have had my WinXP image crash Parallels repeatedly too (even if
I never launch Rev.) I sent them a handful of logs yesterday.
