I don't get any new messages in ~/.xsession-errors after an unsuccessful
logout attempt. However, the problem seems to occur if and only if
qjackctl is running, so I think I've found the culprit. As a
workaround, I'll just quit qjackctl before logging out. But it still
seems like a problem with KDE that an application can cause logout to
fail silently. Thanks for the suggestions!
