Yes, users will sign onto a workstation, and then disappear somewhere
in the building.  They usually forget that they're logged on, which
means the workstation is unusable by anyone else for several days.

Restarting the X server is one solution, but it will kill any running jobs.

If user Bob sees that Alice is logged on, but not doing anything, then
Bob could safely log Alice out.
