Alt + F4 open multiple windows when pressed

  Mine is 500ms too (I think it's default value). When I only "click"
Alt + F4 I get only one `xfce4-session-logout` window as I said. But
when I hold Alt + F4 until reaches repeat delay value the number of
windows begin growing according with repeat speed.
  Yeah, It's not a big problem (I think). However it's an issue that I
found interesting to bring here :-)
