[mythtv-users] Mythwelcome reboots rather than shuts down

I've started using mythwelcome on 0.19 and have set it up as per the
wiki at http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Mythwelcome. My bios
doesn't need to reboot for nvram-wakeup to set the system clock but
the shutdown process just does a reboot rather than a shutdown.

Settings from mythtvsetup  -> General:
Startup command =
Block before client = not checked
Idle timeout = 120 secs
Max wait for recording = 5mins
Startup before rec = 180 secs
Wakeup time format = yyyy-MM-ddThh:mm
Wakeup command = mythshutdown --setwakeup $time
Halt command = sudo mythshutdown--shutdown
Pre shutdown check = mythshutdown --check

Settings from F11 in MythWelcome:
nvram-wakeup command=/usr/sbin/nvram-wakeup -A -C /etc/nvram-wakeup.conf
nvram-akeup restart command =
Command to reboot = /sbin/reboot
Command to shutdown = /sbin/poweroff
Command to run xterm = xterm
Command to run frontend = /usr/bin/mythfrontend

Does anyone know why it's rebooting rather than just getting on with
setting the system time and shutting down? Could it be that the
nvram-wakeup call isn't working - if so how can I debug that?
