Nah, it doesn't work, you aren't Enrico ;)

I don't think handling SIGTERM is really the way to go handling desktop
logout.  To do this right one has to be able to ask the user for her
unsaved files, and this has to pause the logout process.  But I won't
start talking about this because we have 2 guys that implemented thins
about desktop logout handling and I don't want to bring the topic back,
because I don't want to work on this :)  Although it'd probably be cool
to integrate some of the work.
