Description Lt-Henry 2022-09-08 18:34:13 UTC

This applet has three actions available:  Change user, Lock session and Leave. Leave action has the power symbol and in fact, it performs a shutdown request, not a session log out.

So, this is at least, confusing.

On the other hand, I find a Leave=="log out" more appropriate for this applet. I am a developer from LliureX distribution and all users I have talked with agree on this. However, there is room for both "power off" and "leave" actions.

So we used to have this concept of a "default leave action" but we've been steadily moving away from it for the reasons you indicate: it's weird and confusing. We should probably do the same here too.

userswitcher: log out on the "Leave" option, now called "Log Out"

Instead of shutting down, which doesn't make much sense in the context.
