If someone has access to your machine, and can make it crash so they can see
what you were doing, someone mentioned this is local infomation disclosure...
they could just look over your shoulder while you were using the machine or 
install a mini camera someplace in the room, zoom in on your monitor and
acheive much better results.

Umm I didn't offer a solution at all? 

Are you making a statement or asking a question?


Umm more like wondering what you're talking about.

I clearly said I wasn't wise enough to devise a solution for this...
which is why I said I'll leave a solution to the experts...

It's fairly obvious that you either have to do it at shutdown or at
startup.  When else are you going to do it, while the user is viewing
the screen?


I wasn't making a case for either argument.

Also, you seem to have taken my email as a personal attack.  Calm down,
dude.  I was participating in a discussion, not holding up a giant "Stan
is stupid" sign.


Go ahead and hold up a sign doesn't bother me, if it did I wouldn't be 
posting to public mailling lists.
But if you think I'm sitting here steaming about it your barking up the 
wrong tree :-P

I think you're simply inferring too much from what I'm saying.  That's all.
