Hello again,

this may be true for bash, but I remember (from the back of my foggy memory 
somewhere), that I once experimented with freenx and there was a difference if 
I executed some freenx program directly, or ran it from "within" jk_lsh. This 
was the difference between being able to execute some programs in KDE and not 
being able to do so. So jk_lsh had an effect on programs being executed from 
within jk_lsh.
Please don't ask me when and where and what the name of those programs were. It 
was a foggy haze, I didn't write anything down and scrapped the results of my 
test (wasn't happy with them). 

Just sprung to my mind: "Locking down" bash can be achieved too, there is a 
"restricted" mode. Might be something to create a jail but still having to hand 
out different levels of access to different users within that jail. 
Well, this sounds just like the thing Keith was looking for. Different users, 
but each locked to their home directory. Keith, if you do try this out please 
tell us how your experiments went ;-)
