I see the same thing with Mint 9, and since I'm frequently re-booting to
play around with the Maverick alpha, it's annoying.  I don't see
anything with top or htop that could be holding the session open either.

Another Mint annoyance: they don't run a listserv, only a forum (hate
hate hate them!).  Have you asked there?  If not, I'll get one of my
mates who has more tolerance for HTML stupidity to ask for us both.
