Bug Description

Test Case
1. Start a unity8 session
2. Lock the screen
3. Open the system menu
4. Tap on 'Close session' or 'Shutdown'

Actual result
The active session is closed or the system powered off

Expected result
When a user session is locked the only action possible should to suspend the machine or switch to another account, certainly not to close someone else session or shutdown the machine which also means a risk of data loss.

FWIW there's nothing preventing the user at the keyboard from going Ctrl+Alt+F1 and pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del or the power button...
