What I was getting at is that once X is hosed, they can simply reboot
(and enable the C-A-B kill switch for next time, if they care enough),
because they are unlikely to have long-running CLI jobs that would be
lost by rebooting. This was in reply to your argument that it's supposed
to be so terrible if C-A-B is not enabled they first time they need it.

See my other post. It is a valid key combo in Ubuntu (which I had
forgotten in my argument up to this point)
