Red Hat's shutdown script doesn't gracefully shut down INN; it just
starts throwing SIGTERM (and then SIGKILL, if SIGTERM doesn't produce
immediate results) at everything.

I've already written custom /etc/init.d scripts for INN for Solaris;
they ensure INN is properly started up and properly shut down.  I'll
be doing the same thing for Red Hat shortly; I'll give Red Hat copies
of them when I'm done.  So this problem will be fixed eventually...
