So when you're done using the machine, log out and let her log in.
Or, alternatively, hit Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get a console window, have her
log in there, and run 'startx -- :1' to get a second X session. The X
security model really isn't friendly with multiple people using the
same display at the same time.
