Do you get a vmware Panic during shutdown?

the vmware-any-any-update is a vmware3 thing if I recall correctly.

Interesting, as it should be in /usr/X11R6/bin/vmware/bin/vmware
if this was installed after the linux_Base-8 update, and an unpatched
vmware file on my 4.9 system is:

MD5 (/usr/local/lib/vmware/bin/vmware) = b43d5cf153d5928cce65a9c293fafc39
and confirmed from an untarred dist files:
MD5 (/usr/ports/distfiles/vmware-distrib/bin/vmware) = b43d5cf153d5928cce65a9c293fafc39
