X as part of the reboot process. I believe this is considered low
priority right now, but it will eventually behave properly.

I wouldn't consider having no visual output from a laptop when you
reboot/shutdown low priority...
But that's not for me to decide... in any case is there any Bug
Report/PR open about this that we can follow up? I would like to keep up
to date with this.

And thanks for explaining the situation!
