Package: xfce4-session
Version: 4.4.2-6
Severity: important

Hash: SHA1

After a fresh login, I am always able to call the xfsm-shutdown-helper
and get the logout/shutdown dialog. However, after a while, I cannot
anymore and get the following error instead:

> Unable to quit session.
> Quitting the session requires that Xfce's session manager
> (xfce4-session) is running, but it was not detected.  Please quit Xfce
> via another means.

I am included in /etc/sudoers like this:

> ashura  ALL=NOPASSWD:/usr/sbin/xfsm-shutdown-helper

Seems like a dbus issue to me but I have no idea how to debug this.
