Hi Rahul,
It is till Friday in Canada, but I note the time you are responding. I complement you on your dedication.

Yes, in response to your question, I filed bugs, and yes, there are some keyboard changes coming after go live.

As for being able to shutdown from any account. It says that Core5 cannot be used as a server and also have another guest user who could issue that command.
I should not have to modify the halt / shutdown / reboot stuff to add security. If I want a guest end user to do a shutdown,
I want to extend that privledge to him.
This last point is philosophical (I have a UPS to prevent power spike generated shutdowns, and on the otherhand, any user can issue a shutdown request.)

GNOME project is saying they can control access to what is shown on a user's menu. Perhaps that is the way to do it, to prevent access to restricted software.

Did you file a bug report on this?

This one is not a bug.
