    ConsoleKit password dialog when shutdown

    Hi all,
    before reporting a bug in LP, I post my problem here.
    I get a password request from ConsoleKit everytime I shutdown my laptop. It say so because there is another user logged, it's strange, since I'm the only one using the laptop, finger confirms so:

    Code:
    Login     Name                 Tty      Idle  Login Time   Office     Office Phone
    myUser  MyFullName            tty7       36  Oct 16 13:26 (:0)
    myUser  MyFullName            pts/0      14  Oct 16 13:31 (:0.0)
    myUser  MyFullName            pts/1          Oct 16 13:56 (:0.0)
    Someone can tell me what's going on?

    What is the output of "ck-list-sessions" before this happens?

    HI Chris, sorry for the late response, just returned to work today. Here the output of ck-list-sessions:

    Code:
    Session1:
    	unix-user = '121'
    	realname = '(null)'
    	seat = 'Seat1'
    	session-type = ''
    	active = FALSE
    	x11-display = ''
    	x11-display-device = ''
    	display-device = '/dev/???'
    	remote-host-name = ''
    	is-local = TRUE
    	on-since = '2009-10-19T06:36:52.097392Z'
    	login-session-id = ''
    Session4:
    	unix-user = '1000'
    	realname = 'MyFullName'
    	seat = 'Seat1'
    	session-type = ''
    	active = TRUE
    	x11-display = ':0'
    	x11-display-device = '/dev/tty7'
    	display-device = ''
    	remote-host-name = ''
    	is-local = TRUE
    	on-since = '2009-10-19T06:37:36.632685Z'
    	login-session-id = ''
    Looking for user '121' in /etc/passwd i get this:

    Code:
    mythtv:x:121:129::/home/mythtv:/bin/sh
    Seems that mythtv is the culprit, uninstalling it solve the problem. Should I file a bug report?
