Default LONG delay after hitting System > Quit button

Hi,

I'm getting long delays when trying to log off from the System > Quit
button. I'm talking 30 seconds to 2 minutes.

This problem only seems to exist with AD-authenticated (winbind/nsswitch)
users, not local users (files/nsswitch).

Gutsy 7.10 Edubuntu.

Any ideas what might be wrong?

Regards,
Tom Wolfe

This likely isn't your problem, because it would be too easy :-) But in your
/etc/nsswitch.conf what do you have listed for the "hosts" entry? I found I got a lot
of delays with logging in/out if I stuck with the defaults:

hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4

If you have a line that looks like above, try to simplify it with:

hosts: files dns

I don't know why, but that eliminated all of my delays regarding log in/out.

Hope that helps,
Jim

Default LONG delay after hitting System > Quit button

Hi JIm,

Thanks for the tip... I followed your advice but I am still getting these
long delays.

It even happened to one of my local users the other day. The problem
cleared itself when I deleted that user's profile directory & it was
rebuilt using the defaults on login.

This might be a clue but I have no idea what's going on still, and users
have to log off with CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE if they don't feel like waiting up
to two minutes for the Quit dialogue to come up.

Any other ideas out there??

Regards,
Tom Wolfe

Hi all of you,
this is not an answer sorry.
Just to say that i've got the same problem here except that the delay appears to be even more important.

For me too, local user's are concerned.

Bye

Default LONG delay after hitting System > Quit button

Hi Denis:

I did not set up a firewall on the server. Our firewall is on the external
(eth1) network (Endian Firewall). The only thing I have in iptables is an
ip masquerading rule to allow windows machines on the internal network
(eth0) to access the external (eth1) network.

Regards,
Tom Wolfe
