i used to use screen but i lost confidence w/ it from a security
perspective, so i try not to use it any more...it's becoming a tough
thing to avoid though.

you guessed my next question -- but i don't want to be logged out (nor
use tcsh for that matter), i want the screen to be locked ;-)
i wonder if it wouldn't be too hard to modify code near
PCVT_SCREENSAVER to execute an administrator-specified command in
place of blanking the screen...i wonder if this is a bad idea.
