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.
