kernel-hugemem and unmounting fs

Hi, folks.

The other day, I added 4GB of memory to a PE2600 running CentOS 3, bringing 
the total to 6GB.  When the system didn't access more than 4GB, I installed 
kernel-hugemem-2.4.21-52.EL ---> problem solved.  However, now at shutdown or 
reboot, there seems to be a hang when the system reaches the "unmounting 
filesystems" point.  That forces me to do a hard shutdown (ugh).  Has anyone 
else encountered this problem, and what's the fix?

With thanks,
