Description of problem:
An error occurs when trying to log out immediately after starting Xfce live (in rawhide 20190704, bios USB)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. load Fedora-Xfce-Live-x86_64-Rawhide-20190704 onto a USB stick using Fedora media writer
2. in the boot menu select "Start Fedora-Xfce-Live Rawhide" or select "Test this media & start Fedora-Xfce-Live Rawhide", then press enter
3. immediately after the Xfce graphical environment has loaded left-click "Applications" and then left-click "Log Out"

Actual results:
A window displaying an error message appears (see attached screenshot). The full error message is:

-------------------------------
Received error while trying to log out

GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs: Type of message, "(yb)", does not match expected type "(b)"
-------------------------------

Expected results:
A window with log out options should be displayed.

Additional info:
The expected results occur if one waits a few seconds before clicking "Applications" and "log out".

After the window with the error message has appeared clicking "Log out" in the applications menu also causes the regular "log out" window to appear.

Odd. Does this happen everytime?

> Odd. Does this happen everytime?

It happened every time I logged out a few seconds after the graphical environment has loaded, I tried it a few times.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 31 development cycle.
Changing version to '31'.

Ah, so it's a race condition? If you wait a while and logout it works normally, but if you immediately logout it happpens?

Yes, exactly.

Sorry for the delay here. Can you retest this with the latest Xfce packages/live media?

Comment 8 Elizabeth Boswell 2019-08-25 07:23:58 UTC
I retested it with Xfce-Live-x86_64-Rawhide-20190824 and the same error occurred.
