First of all, the logout code is now in gnome-session again. Since gdm
was not changed recently it’s more probably a bug in the code that talks
with it in g-session.

I think I have already seen this bug, but not as frequently; you may be
right about gksu, as I don’t use it much.

If you can reproduce it easily, you might have some luck running
gnome-session in debug mode. I’m interested to know what it outputs when
you logout.
