I've experienced similar problems with Gnome logout taking a long time,
and that always happened whenever I had Xterm windows open. I suspect
session management is the culprit. However, now I use Gnome-terminal,
even though it is awfully slow in comparison (IMO, one of the top most
annoying things about Gnome, a basic thing such as a terminal emulator
should work properly), and so the problem disappeared.
