Just a small suggestion : what about

* keeping an internal countdown (eg 2 minutes), without showing it in
the dialog ;

* when the time is out, either run a password-locked screensaver, ordo
what is necessary so that clicking on "Cancel" (or anything that will
imply staying inside the session) will need the password of the
currently logged user. Clicking on "Log Out", "Shut Down", etc., will

That way : 1) if the user forgets to confirm his logout, his session
can't be stole by someone else (except within these 2 minutes) and 2)
the user won't be "fightened" by any shown countdown.
