halt -h is legal according to its manpage and source-code.  And it works,

According to the changelog, halt -h works since 2.83-3 (which is from 2001),

Which version of the sysvinit package are you using?

Look for other open bugs about this and please contribute to them with
on-spot information.  But make triple sure you have a fully up-to-date
Sarge or Etch or Sid installation first.
