I tried setting this up on my laptop with GDM (Gnome1).

The problem is most of the time when someone logs out e.g. on vt8 my
session on vt7 dies too :-(

I have setup GDM to NOT restart X servers.

Is there something else I may be missing as I'd like to set this up too
so my Wife can start using Linux too :-)
