Small things matter, Precise Polishing!

Registered by Didier Roche on 2011-10-19

Small things matter to get to a high quality products. We generally delayed this small things for bigger fish, but I think that our next LTS is the right time to tackle them.

Some opportunities (feel free to grab):
- restart and shutdown just log out when other users are connected without saying why
- consistent application start-up notifications for all apps (GTK, QT and other), no matter how the app is started (opening a file, from the launcher, the dash, from another application etc.)

pitti: This generally looks fine. However, I think "no appmenu in gnome-{fallback,shell} is a feature, not a bug -- we want to provide a by and large "vanilla upstream" experience there, after all?
