Okay, I guess that makes sense, but as Matt replied, I don't see how
this would ever happen in practice, given the ease of locking things
when stepping away. But I guess Cristóbal works in a university where
he might be using a shared terminal of sorts? Don't these terminals run
"xlock" or similar? Personally I never have a reason to use any
computer but my own.
