My goal is to login to a console and do some non-gui stuff. Then lock
the console and walk away, but still allow X to be used. Sometimes I
like to tail the mail logs in a console, and the only way to lock them
(without killing the tail) is to lock all consoles. The problem then
is that it is impossible to switch to vc7 and use X there.
