Technically it is not known if this is a bug with steam-for-linux or a bug with
general DM behaviour. It may seem obvious to an XFCE developer where the real
problem lies.

I'm not familiar with the XFCE sub-projects. Please let me know if this bug
should be re-filed.

Cross-file Bug Link (Note @Plagman's comments near the end):

Various users of various distributions are having trouble with Steam on Linux
preventing logout/shutdown with various DMs (not just XFCE). We require some
assistance from an experienced person who is able to provide some context as to
possible fixes or troubleshooting steps.

Some of us believe the issue is related to the return values from Steam when it
receives the SIGx message. The alternative view is that this is a result of
undocumented behaviour.
