Adding to my Comment #3...
Logging into a Gnome Session for this first time after a fresh reboot, the Shut Down menu is there. But if I log out of my Gnome Session and then back in, it is gone.

I have the same problem - just logged in after rebooting and the Shut Down menu item doesn't exist.
As bug 466700 has just been marked as a duplicate of this one... that one had been not complaining about the missing "Shut Down" menu item in the "System" menu, but about the presence of an annoying enforced 60 second timeout in the dialog which follows after selecting the (existing!) "System -> Shut Down" menu item, due to the absence of a "Shut Down (NOW)" button in that dialog.
What version of gnome-panel, what version of gnome-session?
Fully updated to today's rawhide on a 64bit system after the weekend and the shut down is present again.
Will test against fresh install tomorrow on a i686 system
I have to agree that the 60 second time out is unnecessary
I have got this problem to.
gnome-panel-2.24.0-6.fc10.x86_64 and gnome-session-2.24.0-10.fc10.x86_64 here.
I have just upgraded to gnome-panel-2.24.0-7.fc10.x86_64 and rebooted the machine, but the Shut Down menu item is still missing.
After rebooting then Shut Down is in menu for System and working.
If user is log out then after login in again then Shut down in menu for System is missing and Log Out Button on panel is grayed out.It is possible to right click on Log Out Button on panel to get help.
See comment #10.
System language is IS.
I have the same problem on an i686 installation... just to mention this is not x86_64 related.
When I start the gnome session shut down is always missing. if i open alacarte then shut down magically appears in the system menu. i am running up to date rawhide.
opening alacarte always makes shut down appear.
I looked at this a bit today with Matthias and we discovered a bogus check that was causing a race condition.
Should be fixed in tomorrow's rawhide.
If you still experience issues, please reopen.
