Hello there!

Since a while (since 2.6.10-1.766_FC3???) I have noticed that when I
choose 'Log Out' from the window in Gnome (running on FC3 x86-64, fully
updated) it takes a very long time before the actual window (where you
can choose either to logout, halt or restart the system) appears. I'm
talking several minutes here, and during that time I can also choose
nothing from the menu, but for the rest the system works without a
fault. Top says the system is pretty much idle, so it's not a
performance problem.
Does anyone else have this problem? Is it a known bug?

Kind regards, Angelo

Hi Angelo, No, I have not seen anything like this. In fact, I just checked and with updatedb banging on the disk, it only took very little time (almost no delay) to bring up the logout window in Gnome for me (though it took a considerably longer time for the menu to actually pop up to click on logout :)). I'm running 766_FC3 on x86_64 as well. You can also bring up this dialog with the command: gnome-session-save --kill You might try doing an strace on this to see if you can find where it is hanging: strace gnome-session-save --kill This should scroll by a lot of stuff. Take note of any places that it hangs. For me, stuff scrolls by until the dialog comes up. You can then run it again and direct the output to a file: strace gnome-session-save --kill 2> logout.txt which will put everything in logout.txt so you can post info to the list or see more of what is going on, just remember where you noticed it hang before. In another terminal, you can also run "tail -f logout.txt" to see what is being printed to the file so you could perhaps run it only once. If nothing looks obvious, send more info to the list.


Thank you for the reply. Weird thing, when I use the command, there is no waiting for the dialog to popup and also the response to the choice I take in the dialog is immidiate..... Only when I choose it from the menu I experience this delay.

Kind regards, Angelo

Seems I spoke too soon :-)


Sometimes it's immidiate, and sometimes it takes as long as from the menu. The strace shows that is stops at:
connect(16, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(16001), sin_addr=inet_addr("")}, 16

When the dialog *does* show up, the same line says:
connect(16, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(16001), sin_addr=inet_addr("")}, 16) = -1 ETIMEDOUT (Connection timed out)

I also have an Athlon XP with FC3 (also fully updated) and this one doesn't show this behaviour....

Kind regards, Angelo
