Grand.  It's also nice to know it's fixed.

Fair enough.  Actually, this is something we (the users of edubuntu) should
probably try and contribute.  I think it would be great to have two things:

1. A strong administrators manual (particularly with a good lot of detail
   on how thin clients work).
2. A short, maybe 3-page document called "Introduction to edubuntu" with
   nice pictures etc.  This would be something you could print out and give
   to users.  Possibly with a few points at which one would customise it
   for one's own network.  Something you could give a teacher who has
   limited knowledge of windows to allay their fears.
