  Sugar-Emulator has no access control

Status in Sugar Learning Platform:
Status in “sugar” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: sugar

  Sugar-Emulator uses the '-ac' flag in the Xephyr command line, with
  turns off access control.

  This means that anyone on the network can attach to the
  display/keyboard/mouse and interfer with the operation of Sugar (such
  as running xeyes, which goes full screen and can not be cancelled!).

  With Xephyr on display :1
  simon at destiny:~$ netstat -an
