Bug Description

It happened twice today: I clicked on the logout button in Kickoff and the computer did a shutdown.

I have not tried if it happens in Krunner as well (I will when I shut down the PC).

FYI: I set a config option to not display the logout dialog when I click an item in Kickoff. Don't know if it is related (don't think so) and I don't remember where the option is hidden in systemsetting ;-)

Probably caused by the ksmserver patch. Needs some investigation.

For what it's worth I can't reproduce this one.

I'll try to reproduce this evening when I turn off the PC. Just have to remember to use logout, I'll put plasmoid on the desktop to remember

I was still able to reproduce this behaviour. I'll try to reproduce the problem on my laptop and I'll try to investigate it a little bit if I am able to reproduce on another system.

I just was able to configure my laptop the way so that the bug appears. It is related to confirm logout dialog.

So open Systemsettings -> Advanced -> Session Manager
remove check "confirm logout", click apply, open Kickoff and click logout and your system will shut down.

logout via krunner is not affected, only kickoff.

Ah, so that's why I couldn't reproduce. ;-)

kdebase-workspace (4:4.1.2-0ubuntu8) intrepid; urgency=low

  * Remove kubuntu_17_kwin_branch.diff completely
  * Fix shutdown where logout was selected, by adding kdisplaymanager.cpp to
    kubuntu_15_kickoff_ksmserver_logout.diff (LP: #279807)
