Yeah, gdm's handling of auto-login appears to be buggy ATM. Actually
gdm's just buggy in general. I'm not sure if we have a report for this
specific bug, but I think Ray knows about it.

This is intentional. If you hold down Alt, a 'Shut Down' option appears
in place of suspend. Restart is considered unnecessary as a general
purpose option, at present, as near as I can tell; I've been yelled at
by the desktop team for saying this, but no-one seems to be
re-implementing it, and when I ask what the real story is, no-one seems
to tell me. So AIUI, it's not there, on purpose, and this is not going
to change. If you need to reboot because you installed updates,
PackageKit is supposed to handle that. If you want to reboot to another
OS, I think there was talk of some kind of special case for handling
that, but it doesn't seem like it's being implemented. Beyond that, all
you can do at present is log out and reboot from gdm, use the 'Shut
Down' option and power back on manually, or run 'reboot' at a console
(which doesn't shut down quite as cleanly).

I think this one deserves a bug report, not sure what against, though -
go with gnome-shell for now.

What's the message?
