Bug Description

In testing Kubuntu Desktop 11.10 amd64 Alpha 3 candidate live session, I was presented with a scary sounding prompt when restarting:


Restart Computer
Abort active sessions:
ubuntu: TTY login
ubuntu: TTY login

I had not logged into any VTs or connected to the system in any way other than the live X session.

I understand the intent of the warning, but I think it might not make as much sense to someone not very familiar with Linux or Kubuntu.

This is the desired warning when shutting down with multiple people logged in. I'm not sure what triggers this and what can be done to avoid it. Perhaps Ubiquity can do something to prevent it?

affects: kdebase-kde4 (Ubuntu) → kde-workspace (Ubuntu)

It is already reported in bug 315865 and set to "Won't fix" for Ubuntu. I'm not setting as duplicate if you want to investigate a solution with Ubiquity.

I think kdm is working as designed here. Not sure why all the sessions get started by ubiquity though.
