Yes - since I switched off RUN_PARALLEL, the partitions got always unmounted.

OK, so it seems disabling RUN_PARALLEL helps. Werner, could you please look
into this?

I think the following part of /etc/init.d/halt is interesting, however, I'm
afraid I don't know how to debug this further. (Furthermore, this doesn't seem
to be util-linux/umount issue).

if test -z "$COLD_BOOT" ; then
# set back system boot configuration
if test "$RUN_PARALLEL" = "yes" ; then

startopt="-p4 -t 30 -T 3"
eval $(startpar $startopt -M halt)
unset failed_service skipped_service

elif test -d /etc/init.d/boot.d/ ; then
# call modules in boot.d via K* symlinks
for link in /etc/init.d/boot.d/K[0-9][0-9]*; do
test -x $link || continue
$link stop
unset link

But this does not mean, that all of the filesystems are going to be unmounted
cleanly. Sometimes, the /var and/or /home-partition can't be unmounted
because they have open files.

What do you mean by "not cleanly unmounted"? - either the FS is busy and it is
not unmounted at all, or it is not busy and it is cleanly unmounted. (Do you
mean that umount is called, but fails?)
