Thanks! That's a very good suggestion - simple, efficient and elegant :). I
will do just that, but I  had another thought occur - I need to take
care of the desktops users left logged in in GNOME. Is there any mechanism
in GNOME to start a program after a certain period of idleness, or a
programmatic hook/signal which I can intercept in order to implement auto
logout for idle desktop sessions? I couldn't find anything of that kind in
the docs,

tia and best regards,
