Not your symptoms no but the tool is showing 'strange' behaviour.
- If you click on logout button it just closes and does not
  actually logout like it used to
- When it should prompt for reboot (after a new kernel for example)
  it does not do so any more but prompts for logout.
I was waiting to see if this is reproducible before reporting.
