    in 10.6.6 I noticed a 3rd user account on my mac (Standard non-admin) that majority of the time I sign into the account (used mainly for spare email accounts dont want on my main accounts), when i got the Apple menu, and click on logout the blue selection flashes as if it recognized the input but no prompt to ask if i want to log out, nothing happens.

    However if i do it a second time it works. same with restart/shutdown.

    Any clues? thanks

    I have the same problem except that even on my second attempt it still does not work. The only remedy I found to be able to change accounts is by doing a hard restart. It happens rarely but it is still annoying.
