Also, if you use gdm, you can put your script on /etc/gdm/PreSession.

I have a script on /etc/gdm/PostSession/:0 to make a backup on exit, but if
it's a kiosk you can't be sure that the session will be properly closed
(hitting ctrl-alt-backspace will bypass the PostSession script), so I guess
PreSession would be better.
