Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome

I'm running Gutsy on a Dell Latitude D820 and I noticed that the shutdown window appears more than once if you keep pressing the shutdown button. You have to click Cancel or press Escape several times to make the window disappear. This also happens in Feisty. It is of course not a serious bug, but there is no reason for the shutdown window to appear more than once.

It happens when I use the power button on the laptop, not the logout button on the screen. Sorry, I should have specified that.

As far as this occuring in Feisty, a fix was released for that, see Bug #81227.

That's different. If I press the power button only once, I have to click Cancel only once. But if I press the power button for example five times, I have to click Cancel five times to make it disappear. This is of course not something that comes up very often (why would you press the power button more than once?), but I think it would be a good idea anyway for the logout dialog to check if it's already running before it opens. There is no need for multiple dialogs to be open.
