Hi.

I've got a strange issue that occurred only casually until today, twice. My login manager is lxdm and my desktop environment is Xfce. I also have a secondary user account for which I use XBMC. Today I wanted to close my Xfce session as usual, with the "Logout" button but closing hung before closing the last running application — I've been keeping a terminal window, Geany for a while.

Today Firefox was also active when I closed my session. The session hung showing Firefox without decorations, mouse still moving but the keyboard was ineffective (I have no led on it so can't tell whether the driver hung or not). All I could do was switch to a TTY and restart xdm service.

Later on I ran XBMC as a session from lxdm and it hung too upon closing. This is the second time this issue occurs upon closing a session today.

Does anybody have an idea where to look at to fix this issue?

The problem indeed lies wtihin LXDM. I changed my login manager for LightDM and not only has the problem gone but login and logout are also faster. Don't ask...
