I have a generic set of logins like comp1, comp2 ... for visitors to the 
lab. But my students who use the lab regularly all have separate logins. 
However, I tried logging onto two machines with the same username and 
both automatically got logged out. So for visiting classes, if one 
student chooses to be bad and login with anothers username, he kicks the 
other unsuspecting kid off. I would like to hear ideas how to prevent 
this. I think that's what you were alluding to norbert with your hint.
