Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-session

when I click on the shutdown/restart/lock screen/hibernate button to restart the computer, items are missing. I have: Lock screen, Suspend, Hibernate, System Settings. There is no restart, or logout, or shutdown. I have had to ctrl+alt+del or terminal - sudo reboot if I want to restart or shutdown.

I remember the menu being complete on initial install. I don't remember when it wasen't. Would have been possibly after an update in the last week.

I've got the same problem.
I tried to check / uncheck the keys under "Apps/Indicator-Session/" (eg. suppress_shutdown_menuitem & suppress_logout_restart_shutdown) both in gconf & dconf, but no change
When running "/usr/lib/indicator-session/gtk-logout-helper --shutdown", the dialog is shown, and I can choose between "shutdown", "restart" & "cancel".
Distribution is ubuntu 10.10, with gnome-shell, but this behavior is the same when under unity.
