I experienced the same problem.
In general: not mythwelcome is shutting down the machine but mythbackend.
(the idle timer sits in the scheduler).
Mythwelcome just shows the state of the backend.
If you want to follow, what happens in the BE:
mythbackend -v idle,system
this will give you messages about the idle timing and system gives you the
status of all external commands, that are executed during the process
(mythshutdown -c etc.)
What I found strange is, that jobs in the queue inhibit shutdown, although the
jobs are all actually deferred for the next day.
(auto-transcode with deferred execution).
I have therefore filtered this status by using mythshutdown -s in a shell script
and ignoring return code 32.
