I agree with you. So far i haven't seen any advantage in using
ubuntu's custom logout instead of gnome's default. I know this is
unpopular but
1) If the new logout doesn't solve more (or more important) problems
than it creates or
2) we are victims of NIH syndrome
then we should ditch it and revert to default.
