Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1266965
gnome-session-failed ("Fail Whale") fails to end session (log out)
Last modified: 2016-07-19 14:03:00 EDT
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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"
"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.
A clean logout. No need to break anything. And a usable way for people with limited knowledge of linux and TTYs.
