  mozilla does this as a security/sanity meassure. some programs make
  sure certain user files have appropriate permissions (appropriate for
  "normal use", that is).

  mmm, if you never log in at the same time, you could go for rsync'ing
  directories (or files) that you want the same before login/after
  logout. i think it can work if you do it right (i.e., taking care of
  only syncinc from newer files to older, etc.)
