ACPI events to shutdown/reboot don't generate a popup like after logging in
There was a bug against virt-manager* where sending a "reboot" or "shutdown" event to a client seemingly doesn't do anything. Turns out that this only happens on the login screen, inside a session you get a popup asking what to do after the power button has been pushed. So something is wrong on the lightdm session, that prevents the popup from happening.
This happens on real hw as well; if you hit the power button while looking at the login screen, nothing happens.
