    No need to reboot. Just log out of the shell with control-d or exit,
    and startup will continue in full multi-user mode.

    Something is not quite right. Exit (or control-d) from single user mode
    should *not* reboot, but just continue with the multi-user startup.
    Reboot should always perform an immediate restart.

    You misunderstood my comment. What I said was that *if* I reboot an OSX
    session preceded by an "exit" of single-user mode, I see the
    "Continuing..." message.
