I'm also running Ubuntu 11.10 with 0.25fixes from mythbuntu-repos, but I 
haven't had any problems with my machine shutting down while recording, 
although I'm not at home right now to explicitly test mythshutdown 
--status / echo $?.

Are you sure the upgrade went well? Are you definitely using the 
mythshutdown binary from 0.25, not something hanging over from 0.24?

What does:

	dpkg -l *myth*
