Description of problem:
When you finally get into the system and are ready to log in you've different
choices to take, between some others:
1 - Restart System
2 - Shut down
Any user who access the system is able to restart or shut down the system, I'm
not sure if there's a way to change it, my machine used to crash after 1 minute
of started the graphical interface.
Also when you login into the X and try to log out the system crashes and doesn't
respond to keyboard.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. When the system displays the login information, where you should complete
your username and password
Actual Results: any user could restart or shutdown the system
Expected Results: Only admin users, or users with some privileges should do it.
The reboot issue isn't a bug, you are only given those permissions if you
are on the console (where you could just push the power button or Ctrl+Alt+Del
anyway, or unplug the computer). Also the reboot/shutdown items will vanish
if you configure the system so users can't reboot, probably google will
turn up instructions for that pretty quickly.
The gnome-session crash is a separate bug, it's probably already filed
but we need to verify that it is. Please try to report only one issue
per bug, as each bug needs to be separately tracked and get its own
99216, 100507 are other reports of the logout crash, so closing this bug.
