Or a better solution might be to pop up a dialog saying "Shutting down
system. Please wait while critical data is saved" or something like
that. And run a loop which will do a gtk exit when the critical phase
has passed and a flag has bee set.

Otherwise if this takes some time the user might kill the app in stead
as it thinks it has hung or something.
