For anyone who is interested the fix was simple. I downloaded and installed oblogout and obmenugenerator. I ran obmenugenerator. Opened the file ~/.config/obmenu-generator/schema.pl and uncommented the line "{item => ['oblogout', 'Exit', 'application-exit']}," and commented out the line "{exit => ['Exit', 'application-exit']}," saved the file and closed. Right clicked to select Advanced Settings, openbox, reconfigure openbox. Then all was good. I hope this helps someone...
