When say "potentional shutdown problems", to what do you mean?
Because the only issue is that systemd-shutdown code will try to 
"unroll" all mount points/loop devs/device mapper/... in a 
"for-0-to50-do", so lots of non-harm warnings will be displayed. (In 
some way this happens already with initscripts, in a much minor way).
