Well still nothing in the logs that even resemble any help for me which is becoming frustrating.
Though with further testing what I thought helped does not appear to have. I was able to shutdown/reboot about 10 times smoothly. Then after that each shutdown or reboot I tried went back to the old behavior of having the red screen.
I am back to having to use shutdown -hF 1 or longer wait to get it to smoothly shutdown or reboot.
Thanks again to those who have offered some insite so far, I will keep trying more things to see if I can track this down, or fingers crossed some miraculous update comes that automagically fixes me ;P
Just an idea change some of the shutdown scripts, explicitly unload the nvidia blob etc and maybe include some kind of "milestone" debug information in the scripts in /etc/rc.*shutdown ... you might just by accident find the culprit and get things right with a while kill -0 loop or sleep.
