I noticed some issues with forever logging in/out syncing the profiles 
as well...
but since I'm not there in the classroom teaching...the teacher hasn't 
complained yet so I haven't gotten a service call to "fix" anything.
But would like to know if there are some issues that I aught to be 
dealing with...
