No, I have not seen anything like this. In fact, I just checked and
with updatedb banging on the disk, it only took very little time
(almost no delay) to bring up the logout window in Gnome for me
(though it took a considerably longer time for the menu to actually
pop up to click on logout :)). I'm running 766_FC3 on x86_64 as well.
You can also bring up this dialog with the command:
You might try doing an strace on this to see if you can find where it
strace gnome-session-save --kill
This should scroll by a lot of stuff. Take note of any places that it
hangs. For me, stuff scrolls by until the dialog comes up. You can
then run it again and direct the output to a file:
strace gnome-session-save --kill 2> logout.txt
which will put everything in logout.txt so you can post info to the
list or see more of what is going on, just remember where you noticed
it hang before. In another terminal, you can also run "tail -f
logout.txt" to see what is being printed to the file so you could
perhaps run it only once. If nothing looks obvious, send more info to
