You're not running the latest, that would be:

ioQ3 1.34-rc3 linux-i386 Nov 28 2006

That's odd, it should be:

Started tty console (use +set ttycon 0 to disable)
----- CL_Shutdown -----
RE_Shutdown( 1 )
Shutdown tty console

The renderer not shutting down is the problem, but I can't see how that
would happen and can't reproduce.

Try using the rc3 binary to see if it still happens.

Also does it happen every time, and does it matter if you exit before
loading a map?
