Description of problem:
The Main Menu => Log Out dialog does not have the shutdown or
reboot options shown in Fig. 1-10 of the RHL 8.0 Getting

to configure user accounts to allow non-root shutdown/reboot
from the GUI.)

figure 1-10.

Hmmm, this is not a usermode bug. The usermode package takes care about user
authentication and doesn't have many things in common with menus. This bug is
rather old, so closing it DEFERRED as it's impossible to fix it in RH 8.0 any more.
