Package: xfce4-session
Version: 4.6.1-1
Severity: important


The shutdown via hal used to work for a while, but now it doesn't. I get 
an error similar to this one in .xsession-errors

** (x-session-manager:5417): WARNING **: xfsm-shutdown-helper.c:234: 
Failed to contact HAL: 
org.freedesktop.hal.power-management.reboot-multiple-sessions auth_admin 
<-- (action, result)

I also tested with a new user and hal is indeed running on my machine.
