Bug Description

== Impact ==
"Restart" button in the Additional Drivers page is triggering a shutdown instead of a reboot.

== Development Fix ==
Fixed in saucy (0.92.18) by replacing a call:

    /usr/lib/indicator-session/gtk-logout-helper --shutdown
    /usr/lib/indicator-session/gtk-logout-helper --restart

== Regression Potential ==

== Original Description ==
After I had installed the guestdriver for virtualbox I pressed the "Restart" button. This triggered a shutdown and not a reboot.

== Test Case ==
1. Install a driver using the Additional Drivers page.
2. Press "Restart" button.
3. The system should restart, not shutdown.

No, the Additional Drivers panel was only introduced in Quantal.
