Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-applets

The "Log out" keyboard shortcut is assigned to Ctrl+Alt+Del. When I press this combination, the "Shut Down the Computer" opens, but is not focused*. It should be focused, so it can be navigated with a keyboard without using Alt+Tab or the mouse first.

* If you press Ctrl+Alt+Delete, focus the "Shut Down the Computer" window, dismiss it, and press Ctrl+Alt+Del again without changing the application in the meantime, it will be focused.

This is important since this dialog has a timer that will automatically perform a potentially destructive action (shutting down the computer) unless the user intervenes. In my opinion, the rest of the screen should be dimmed when this dialog is shown, so the user cannot miss it.
