If you really are logging off (and not using user switching), the XWin process
really should be terminated. If it doesn't shutdown in response to the
WM_ENDSESSION it's sent, it'll be forcibly terminated.
However, there seems to be a bug with Xwin that we don't shutdown cleanly when
sent WM_ENDSESSION, and so leave behind the lock file and unix socket, which
will cause a subsequent attempt to run Xwin by a different, non-privileged
user to fail.
Thanks for reporting the problem.
