running script on client upgrade

We currently have 4.91 SP4 of the Netware client installed on all our workstations (Windows XP SP3). We are going to upgrade them to SP5 using the ACU utility, but it is going to be run thru a Zen App Object (Zen 7.0.1.0). We have a script command to "run after termination". At the end of the client upgrade, the user is given 2 options: reboot or close. If the user selects "close", the script runs, but if the user selects "reboot", the script does not run. Why? Shouldn't the script run no matter which selection the user chooses?

Possibly better asked in the ZEN groups, but my guess is that "Reboot"
simply bypasses the win logout that ZEN uses as a trigger. Can't you do
the reboot through ZEN?

Ie, uncheck ""Reboot upon completion"" and then have ZEN reboot the pC
when the batchfile has run.
