The problem is that gnome-session does not know about logout actions,
therefore no sound is queued at all. The idea is that gnome-session
would execute all the shell scripts in /usr/share/gnome/shutdown/. Of
course, there is some details to work out, like when in the shutdown
sequence to do this (or can scripts register to run in a  certain phase
of the shutodwn ?), and how to wait for the logout sound to be completed
without letting a misbehaving script block logout, etc. This should best
happen in upstream bugzilla.
