Description

I guess we should forcefully run the Unsafe Browser teardown code at shutdown time, if we don't find anything more clever.

On my branch for #12354 I've tried two scenarios:

  • starting the Unsafe Browser then clicking the shutdown button (in the GNOME Shell top-right menu)
  • starting the Unsafe Browser then unplugging the boot device

In both cases the machine shuts down within a few seconds, and I had no time to see any scary failure message.

I temporarily altered all the emergency_shutdown.feature scenarios to start the Unsafe Browser, and I saw nothing strange.

See #12354 for the review (no blockers found). Please close when you merge!
