Description of problem:
I have modified my X Setup to start 2 X servers, adding an extra line
to /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers. Under 7.2 this worked fine. Under 7.3, this prevents
shutdown/reboot from working from the KDE login/logout prompt: instead, KDE
shuts down on the X server from which I have exited, but the other X server
(and kdm) remain running. Executing shutdown -r|h now from the command line
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add another X server to /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers (say on vt8)
2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete in KDE to exit
3. Select shutdown or reboot (logout works fine)
Actual Results: KDE exits...but kdm is still running, as is the other X
server, and the system doesn't shut down.
Expected Results: The system should shutdown/reboot.
Additional info: As expected, commenting out the second X server makes
shutdown/reboot work as expected.
Sounds like a feature to me (prevents you from inadvertently killing running
session on the other X server).
