Re: multiple X sessions problem
Let me count the reasons...
1) If I want to do some work when someone else is already logged in via
xdm (ie: They don't mind the 'break' but would mind "shutting down"
2) If I am logged in as me and decide that I want to do a bunch of
"sysadm" type stuff, I will frequently establish another x session so
that none of the 'root' tools are in my 'normal' session.
3) Testing configuration changes made for a user is most conveniently
done by having two sessions (I think).
4) No doubt others have their own reasons in addition to these.
