Is it really necessary to kill all children of gdm when gdm itself gets stopped?
I might have started some backgrounded script somewhere that should really
continue running after gdm gets killed. I would see it as a major regression if
these things get killed along with gdm.

Case in point, I have gnome-terminal set up to run byobu-launcher which sets up
a screen session, and the session continues on between gdm sessions, allowing me
to reconnect to it after re-logging in, either on gdm again, a tty or via SSH.

Kind regards,
