[Pkg-ayatana-devel] Bug#636069: indicator-session: Commands "Restart" and "Shut Down" do nothing

Package: indicator-session
Version: 0.2.17-1
Severity: normal

The expected behaviour is that, after clicking on the desired applet menu
entry, a confirmation dialogue will appear; and (once the action has been
confirmed via a confirmation dialogue) the action will be executed.

However, if I choose either "Restart" or "Shut Down", nothing happens after the
action is confirmed. The other menu commands ("Lock Screen", "Switch User",
"Log Out", "Suspend", "Hibernate") work normally.

On the other side, if I use either the GNOME "System" Menu option or the
Shutdown button applet to perform either a "Restart" or a "Shut Down", they
will work as expected.

A credentials/permission problem, maybe?
