It's a minor inconvenience to me.  But it's a whole other ball game when
you have 45 users, with some employee turnover, who "just have to hit
CTRL-ALT-F".  Not to mention embarrassing to have to explain that it's a
bug in "Linux".

This is *much* appreciated.  I'll be collecting up the thank you's from
my users and sending them over in one batch to avoid list clutter. ;-)
