Isolated shutdown?

Hello all,

I've set up a system container with a mostly-complete filesystem, built from
scratch.  However, I'm having several minor issues, which leads me to
believe I'm misunderstanding something about how lxc works.  For one thing,
I find myself unable to kill processes within the container itself (process
handling is a whole other issue)... yet when I run 'shutdown', it not only
shuts down the container, but also the host!  Somehow I don't think this was
a design decision. :-)

Any tips would be appreciated.
