how do you kill a user's old processes when they try to log back on

Actually, Firefox v3 has been pretty wonky for other reasons. It's really
slow and does weird things, even on my desktop machine, so I had considered
uninstalling it and going back to v2.

On the other hand, it looks like from Asmo's email that the change to avoid
stressing thin clients isn't on by default, so I'll try setting that and see
if it helps any. That doesn't solve the problem with OpenOffice, though,
which does the same kind of pixmap caching, with the same disastrous
results, so XRAMPERC is kind of necessary until we get OO worked out, too.
