Hi Fred, and a warm welcome to the forums!
You mention Repairing Permissions, but did you try Verifying/Repairing the HD?
When you Safe Booted it still wouldn't **** down?
Have you tried making a new User in Accounts to see if they have the same problem?
How much Free Space is on the HD?
Do you have the part of the crash log starting with Thread xx crashed?
Hello and Welcome to Apple Discussions ...
To add to BDAqua's suggestions ...
What you are experiencing is called a kernel panic. Usually just a reboot fixes this but if not... go here for help; http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/kernelpanics.html
Thank you for your welcome and for your answers
BDAqua >> I tried repairing the HD ; when I safe booted, it wouldn't shut down ; making a new user didn't solve the problem ; there is more than 20GB of free space on this HD.
