[Comm-en] No provision to shut down Terminal?

More testing on the 5.0.2 Terminal snapshot from Michael Shigorin's web
site: altlinux-5.0-20110423-terminal-i586-ru-install-cd.iso at
It seems that there is no software provison for shutting down a
terminal. KDE menu > Log Out > End Current Session returns the terminal
to the login screen, and there the Menu button > Close Connection merely
loops back to the login.
The only way to shut down the terminal then is to press the power button.
Perhaps this is by design and does no harm shutting down that way, but
it would be more comforting to have program controls to do this. Or
have the power button configurable by Power Management to do the same.
(If this is possible, I could not find the setting for it.)
I don't know what common practice is among the range of Linux distros,
but I confirmed just now that in Lubuntu, the terminal's Shutdown
control displays a Logout menu with Shutdown/Reboot/Logout/Cancel, and
Shutdown causes the terminal to do a full shutdown with no return to the
login. (There is another distro where Shutdown from that first menu
returns the terminal to the login, but then clicking Preferences or
Options offers a Shutdown option. That too seems annoying and messy --
you have to command Shutdown twice.)
Am I missing something?
