Well, your defvar is overidden by the menu.jls defvar,
setq/define-special-variable while overcome that. Just for the record.

Daniel, if you're using Sawfish 1.6.0, you may consider

(poweroff halt)

instead of poweroff, as this does shutdown sawfish
cleanly, while

(system "poweroff")


By default this calls "sudo shutdown -h", but you can adjust it via

(define-special-variable halt-command "poweroff")

besides halt/halt-command, also reboot/reboot-command,
hibernate/hibernate-command and suspend/suspend-command are available
for poweroff as actions/options.
