Excerpts from Anurag Chowdhury's message of Sun Sep 19 19:51:02 +0200 2010:

> Shutdown (and Logout) menu items should activate the buzzy cursor (or provide some other visual feedback, perhaps dimming/locking the UI from use).

It's called a "busy cursor" [1] because it indicates that the computer
is currently busy, not because it buzzes around. ;)
Please wrap lines in the patch description so they are no longer that 80
characters ([2] hints at it in section 15).
The subject is fine in general (except for the double [PATCH] and buzzy
vs. busy), though I would express it in a more active way: Use busy
cursor during shutdown and logout.

> +        self.window.get_window(set_cursor( gtk.gdk.Cursor(gtk.gdk.WATCH)))

Please run pep8 [3] and fix anything you introduced.
