When I try to shut down or reboot the system using Xfce's dialog, the desktop disappears as usual, but then SLiM shows "failed to execute login command" and I end up at the login screen. It somehow fails to shut down the X server. I can initialize a shutdown from the login screen by pressing the power button then.

I think it's more related to the systemd changes. What init system are
you using?
