Package: xfce4-xfapplet-plugin
Version: 0.1.0-3
Severity: normal
File: xfce4-xfapplet

xfce4-xfapplet process does not die when X server is killed, e.g., by
pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del. This inteferes with normal operation of
xfapplet the next time user logs in.

For a more specific example, I use xfapplet with tomboy and uim. If I
ever need to kill the X server rather than logging out normally---normal
logout does not cause problem on subsequent login---then xfapplet
process persists after X server is dead (with PPID of 1), and
consequently, tomboy and uim processes keep running as well, and when I
log in the next time, the new xfapplet process has difficulty launching
another instance of tomboy process.

For the moment, I can get around the problem by logging in via virtual
terminal and killing the errant xfapplet processes, but it seems like a
user shouldn't have to do that, even after a forced shutdown of the X
