in reply to Logging out

Is it possible to have another telnet session (forked), then `killall xinit` to kill the server. I'm not sure I fully understand the requirements though.

    Unfortunately not. I'm using vncserver with Gnome for administrative work. If I kill all the xinits, the one serving VNC goes, too.

    I did try this anyway, though, just to see what would happen. Gnome and my Perl script were left running as zombies. So when I tried manually logging out of Gnome, I couldn't.
