#7350 closed defect (fixed)

PolicyKit policies don't allow active user to shutdown/reboot with multiple sessions

Verified: no


The PK policies state that the active user can't shutdown the system (unless authorised as an admin) if multiple sessions are running.

If you login at the console, this counts as multiple sessions (you can't shutdown/reboot from sugar). Even after you logout from the console, you have to restart sugar before it lets you shutdown again.

This is still broken in os2181. It wouldn't restart (and it gave me ZERO error messages, it just didn't do anything). Eventually I looked up this bug, and exited my console shell. Now when I pressed restart, it hung for half a minute or so and then produced #6086 ("Keep error" at the top of the Journal screen).

If some kind of system policy makes Sugar ignore my instructions to power off or restart, it ought to tell me. The power button is very close by, and it takes orders only from me!
