I recently had a similar behavior using startx and I think that was
caused by an update of policykit and/or consolekit, because like the
kernel, when the policykit and consolekit packages are updated, the
system needs to be restarted for the updates to take effect. So, as
long as the system is not restarted. reboot and shutdown are broken.
