logfiles for shutdown (gdm restarts after starting shutdown)

when i click on shutdown on my sid system it starts to shutdown and
then GDM will restart with the logon screen so i have to shutdown

this only happens when i run shutdown from the menu and not from
pressing the power button.

is there a shutdown log i can check? it's a really weird behaviour.
