Haha :) No, it's just that, as far as I can see, the impact on newbies
is that we tell them to reboot instead of doing ctrl-alt-backspace.
Total cost: about twenty seconds (time to reboot vs. time to restart X).

Oh. it is a secret project to test data loss for ext4!

Killing X kills all X apps in any case, so they're not going to lose any
data rebooting that they wouldn't have lost anyway by doing

UNEXPECTED FILE INCONSISTENTY, please run fsck manually

We'll see if the newbies can find /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 as their
disk and see if the figure out the "-y" option in time for F12 :)

ps. This is slightly less of a joke. It's the real difference of having or
not having ctlr-alt-bksp (or alt-sysrq-o, or was it alt-sysrq-r? and did I
have to wait for it to print 'OK' before hitting alt-sysrq-b again? oh wait
sysctl.conf had this disabled.)
