Yeah definitely, it would be nice if it could just play the sound async,
then do the session closing stuff. I agree..saving the session takes a very,
very long time to complete. In fact, that's the slowest part of my shutdown
process; after that finishes, the kernel only takes a few seconds to
shutdown. Then after you are sick of waiting, you wake up and find it is
still running, but with the kdm prompt asking if it should close all virtual
terminals, but I digress ;-)
