Back before we had three computers (one for me, one for Melissa, one for
random guest who wanted to check their e-mail), I'd run GDM on two displays.

One for me (Ctrl-Alt-F7), and one for the other uses (Ctrl-Alt-F8).

I'd simply lock my display and switch to 'F8', and others could log in and
out and go about their business.

Mem. hog, but useful!  GDM supports this pretty much out-of-the-box.


PS - Rusty!  Are you getting any "if@lugod.org" e-mail?
     I've been wanting to know if there's any scheduled for June! :)
