Logout delay

Usually, when I log out of Linux, there's no problem. At all. But when I try to log out soon after logging in, it won't let me -- that is, nothing happens for a few minutes, after which the log out window is displayed. Anybody know why?

While I'm asking about this, I might as well also ask this....

When I log in, there's always a nautilus window open, focused on /boot/grub/. How can I prevent this?

Did you have a nautilus window open to that directory when you logged out and saved the current settings? That might have `remembered' that you had that app open and restored it for you upon relogging in.

I find that the darned system remembers things that you don't want to remember but it refuses to remember that I want gkrellm launched automagically and that my mixer settings should not come up fully muted. (Grumble, grumble)

As for the Nautilus window, it's being auto opened for some reason when X starts or you login to the GUI you use, gnome?
As for the login/logout delay, how soon after login do you mean to logout? If it's way too soon, you have to wait for it to stop initializing before it'll process the logout. That's my best answer on that one. Which distro you use will determine how and where you can find the entries to remove Nautilus OR go into Naut. and see if there's something in the settings.
