Also, a non-root process (like KDE, unless you're using it as root which isn't 
recommended) can't reboot the machine. This is either an X or a kernel 
problem; can't tell which without being able to reproduce it. 
Do you get anything in /var/log/messages when this happens?
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-04-03 07:14:34 EST
By any chance, are you using kdm and kdebase < 3.0.0-0.cvs20020321.1? 
If so, it's actually a kdm problem (misinterpreting the log out vs. reboot vs. shutdown 
choice in the logout dialog) and can be CLOSED:RAWHIDE.

Unable to find any traces or indications of problem in system logs.  No longer
occurs in skipjack-2 installation I am currently running.  You can probably
close this one out.
