I had just taken xlock off yesterday and i read this thread first thing
this morning. Good timing. The problem was that I didn't see any point
in having it on if anyone could pres ctrl-alt-bs and at the console. So
if I want a secure X environment, what are my choices?

1. XDM?
2. Secure the console before? You mention above it being trivial. How
can one do it?
