[Newbies] Safe shut down

All we really need is to clean up a session during shutdown. The simple way
is to trap SIGTERM and do the right thing: at the minimum do a save. If
possible, prompt user to save yes/no. XSMP and D-BUS do more than Unix
signals, such as the option to restart automatically. That sort of thing
might be useful, but let's learn to walk first.

Comments welcome.

Hope that helps, David
