Description Christian Stadelmann 2015-09-28 12:58:55 EDT
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always on one machine

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reproduce any Xorg or gnome-shell crash. Or just run `/usr/libexec/gnome-session-failed --allow-logout` 
2. Click "Logout"

Actual results:
"Fail Whale" Window disappears. Logout doesn't happen. Most applications continue running. Gnome-shell is still dead. User has no way (except TTY or hard resetting the PC) to end his user session.

Expected results:
A clean logout. No need to break anything. And a usable way for people with limited knowledge of linux and TTYs.
