Description of problem:
After recent updates on a root desktop there is a "Log out"
menu entry but it is doing nothing. It is not even clear what
it is supposed to do to show up a logout alert and where failures
could be possibly recorded. The only way out from a gnome
session is to kill X server (Alt-Ctrl-Back will do).
Interestingly enough for non-root accounts a logout alert still
shows and even works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
A logout action is gone and is not returning.
This seems to work for me with current rawhide
