I haven't had it abort login, but the extension did stop working when I
upgraded from F15 to F16. I only get the "Suspend" or "Log off" options.
I tried the ALT key, which does allow shutdown or restart (thanks for
the tip on that). But the extension under F15 also had Hibernate, an
option I often use, and the ALT key doesn't give me that option (athough
pm-hibernate from the command line does still work).
