Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-applet

On Lucid RC: after upgrading the system from Karmic, I cannot shutdown anymore easily. There is a PolicyKit authentication dialog:

"System prevents stopping the system when other users are logged in."

The problem is... I'm the only user logged in the system. If I do who from the command line, I get:

> who
ludo tty8 2010-04-23 21:45 (:0)
ludo pts/0 2010-04-23 21:47 (:0.0)
ludo pts/1 2010-04-23 22:03 (:0.0)

It looks like policyKit is not able to recognize that the same user is logged multiple times.
I have no running applications, other than the terminal.
