Hm.  It doesn't do anything particularly interesting, though if they launch 
KMail it will automatically log in to my mail server at home and pull my 
mail.  Yes, I've already gone ahead and changed all the passwords that 
computer would use to automatically log in to various accounts (AIM, Yahoo, 
e-mail, etc.).

I'll need to start checking those access logs.  Hmm.
