Re: All hash prompts look the same

From the man page: kill -9 -1 is "Kill all processes you can kill."

This does NOT look like a sane way to shut down a system in a clean way: -9 is SIGKILL and that only should be used as very last resort. Send SIGTERM, then wait... long... enough..., only then kill stubborn processes with SIGKILL.
