According to satanselbow (third post on this discussion 
<>) you 
should have a glance at what might be going amiss with lxde-logout.

If all else fails and you're in a real hurry, save your work and run 
something like "kill -s 15 -1" to ask all your processes to be 
(gracefully?) ended. This should drop you back to your greeter. I 
acknowledge this is a dirty solution, but if you haven't other options 
this may serve you better than rebooting every time.
