we have a spec [1] since gutsy to integrate the ltsp chroot with the
update-manager so it would actually notify you about upgrades available for
the client chroot, sadly the spec has no high priority and my time to work
on such stuff is very limited .... so fo the time being the answer is: every
timre your desktop notifies you you should update if you really think you
need to  ... the thing with ltsp is that its rather a closed environment (no
accounts on the client at all, root locked and its actually a readonly
filesystem) so it isnt as vulnerable  as a normal system.
