        Trouble is that the menu item is split between logoff and shutdown and
the c-a-d gets you both options, which, I prefer so I always use the keyboard
when I'm going to logoff or reboot or whatever.


I kind of like having some option to get to the old style shutdown/reboot/logout dialog too. It seems to be the easiest way to save your session unless all the direct buttons do that by default now?
Actually, I just looked at the Sessions manager and it looks like the new direct Logout dialog is ignoring the "Ask on logout" checkbox. Also, having it save by default seems to be an option that is not on by default ... which is fine with me.
