THANK YOU for bringing this up! Hardy's functionality w.r.t. the
logout/suspend/hibernate/shutdown/switch was quicker and better
looking. I know the separate screens are how upstream does it, but
that doesn't make it better. I would REALLY like to see this changed
back to the way it was.

As far as the gnome-status thing changing Pidgin/Empathy statuses, I
don't personally mind, though I don't really care for it. I can see
where it causes problems more than it solves them.

I have system sounds turned off... heh.

Again, PLEASE change the logout button back.
Luke L.
