I'd suggest using "su flea esdctl on" (replace flea with your username), or
whatever you do to restart esd. If you want a generic solution, use ps to
capture the username associated with esd before you kill it, and when your
computer resumes, read that info from an environment variable. Then the
startup command would go "su $ESDUSER ...".
Did you know that if you play a Windows 2000 cd backwards, you
will hear the voice of Satan?
That's nothing! If you play it forward, it'll install Windows 2000.
