That SIGKILL after SIGTERM was just a precaution. I felt the greeter should be able to kill Onboard dead in case anything unforeseen happens. Fixing this bug better not prevent you from logging in, I thought. However, in my tests Onboard always shut down rapidly on SIGTERM. It's not writing anything to disk then either. The only times the branched greeter got to actually send SIGKILL was when I deliberately added a delay to Onboard's SIGTERM handler for testing.
