That seems like a particularly bad idea since anyone will be able
to delete everyone else's saved work, aside from the problems
you mention.  But if you can't set up individual logins, how
about having each workstation auto-login with its own account
to avoid conflicts with running programs that expect to have
unique files in their $HOME directory?
