Thank you for your bug report, that's a wanted upstream change:

"media-keys: Call Shutdown for the logout action
By default will request whether to shut down the machine, or reboot it.


Not sure that's what we want though...

I see. I'd rather have the logout option when pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL, because when pushing the power button on my laptop, the shutdown dialog appears. Historically, CTRL+ALT+DEL "killed" the X-window session, effectively logging you out. That concept should be kept.

Doesn't make sense to me why pushing the power button and pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL bring up the same dialog...

... and yes, I agree with the sentiments in bug #890747 - there should be more options available when pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL.
