On having been in the shell, you write exit to return to the system
selection and on having pressed Linux, he remains blocked

I'll need a lot more information than that to track this down. For starters, what
kind of machine is this on, what's the partition layout, what method is used to
boot Linux? What is the last thing that is visible on the screen? What happens
when the Linux icon is selected without first going to the shell?
I may have found the root cause for this problem. It seems the shell invalidates
open file handles held by rEFIt, so strange things can happen in rEFIt after
returning from the shell. Fixing this may require some changes to rEFIt's internal

In my MacBook black.
I have just received a MacBookPro, last version (June 2007), 120GB HD. I install refit in MacOS X and execute it (no other program installed, no linux yet). I restart computer. I choose EFI shell in refit menu. It prints:
EFI Shell version 1.10 [1.10]
Currrent running mode 1.1.2
Device mapping table
Press ESC in 1 sec ...
I press help.
I press exit, the refit menu appears.
The fans start loud in a few seconds.
I choose again EFI shell. It prints:
Current running mode 1.1.2
[_ means the cursor]
And the keyboard freezes (the computer too :o)).
