Does that work?  Is this something that changed from GNOME 2.0 to the latest GNOME?
The reason I ask is that we are using Sun's GNOME distribution.  And when I look
into the hundreds of files created for a user, I see userids embedded throughout the
structure - in .galeon, .gconf, .gnome, .gnome2 and so forth.

Won't there have to be a pass that goes through these files making changes for
the userid?
