Description of problem:
When you logout of gnome on RH Enterprise Linux release 2.95AS the screen goes
black and it just sits (non gui logon - inittab level 3). I'm unable to logon
with any of the virtual terminals to kill this session. I do not have this
machine on a network where I can access it via ssh to see if I could kill it
that way. I have to power the machine off and back on. It seems to work fine
with a gui logon (inittab level 5).

Steps to Reproduce:
2.logon at non gui log on prompt
4.click red hat, log out and select log out
Actual Results: screen goes black and does nothing
Expected Results: return back to non gui logon as previous versions
