    13.10 does not shutdown/restart gracefully

    Hi,
    I have a clean (not an upgrade) installation of 13.10 and it does not shutdown gracefully. i.e. a gedit session closes without asking to save and loses edits.
    What could be wrong?

    Are you saying that Gedit is crashing at unexpected times?
    Or are you saying that Gedit is mysteriously losing data when you try to shutdown/restart your system?
    Or are you saying that your system mysteriously powers off at unexpected times?

    I start gedit (for the sake of being an example) type a few things, and then before saving, I click Shutdown (or Restart) from system menu (Top-right corner). I expect a dialogue to pop, asking me if I wanted to save changes, discard or cancel. Nothing. System shuts down / restarts ungracefully and obviously losing the edits in the process.

    You are doing things in gedit and then don't save it but choose to shutdown or reboot your system?

    yes. just to demonstrate that it does shut down ungracefully.

    So when you click shutdown, do you get a "Are you sure you want to shutdown" dialog?
    Does the system actually shut down? Or does it give you a login prompt instead? Or something different?

    Please list the contents of your /var/crash directory.

    Yes, I do get the "Goodbye" dialog with two huge buttons for Restart and Shutdown. Upon clicking either of these buttons, system eagerly shuts down without asking any further questions. If I had clicked "shutdown" then the system powers down; if I had clicked "Restart" then the PC restarts.
    Nothing in the /var/crash
