You will need to know, users DISPLAY and SESSION_MANAGER variable value

Make sure, gconf key  "/apps/gnome-session/options/logout_prompt"
is set to false, to remove login prompt.

ans set gconf key "/apps/gnome-session/options/auto_save_session"
to true to auto-save session.

To logout from a gnome-session.

	/usr/bin/gnome-session-save --kill
	sleep 5

	# To kill non session aware applications.
	killall metacity-dialog
