Bug Description

To reproduce boot a live session of Lubuntu. Then on the run command in the menu run lxsession-default webbrowser. Then the session will exit and you will be at a login screen.
I am on lxsession
release Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
Also note this this exits the session and on first try you can press enter at lightdm and log in. After that you can no longer log into a session if you run lxsession-default webbrowser again.

This does not happen on a daily build of utopic i386 on a desktop running lxsession And dbus 1.16.18-0ubuntu9. Which /usr/bin/lxsession-default uses dbus.send.

Same here but on an installed Lubuntu 14.04.1 LTS.
I can reproduce it when :
- Click on reload in lxsession-default-apps on webbrowser
- execute command : "lxsession-default webbrowser"
- Click on "Internet" on openbox menu

I cannot reproduce this in a daily Vivid live session, so it may have been fixed in subsequent updates since occurring in Trusty/14.04 LTS. I'm still new to bug triage, so I will reach out and see what to do in this case.

I definitely can reproduce this on an up-to-date version of Trusty.

Will file an upstream bug.

I can reproduce this bug on a fully up-to-date version of Trusty.

It also happens when I type lxsession-default calculator or press the reload button in lxsession-default-apps for calculator.
