In fact, using the Shutdown and Reboot actions through the DBus
service renders the bug. Xfce4-session is patched on Moblin, I don't
know if I would get the same result with a pristine version. But using
those actions through the prompt dialog works fine.

Yes, that is probably what it should be doing as the Shutdown method
from the session manager allows the clients to close safely, but still
it must be able to revert to an internal shutdown command in case it
runs with another manager or outside Xfce.
