Ugh, I can't even find how to manually lock the screen in 9.10. In previous
releases, there used to appear lots of options when the "power" button in
the upper right corner was clicked. Along with them was the option to switch
user and to lock the screen. Now only "logout", "susupend", "restart" and
"swithc off" are available.

What happened?
