[K12OSN] Kill User processes on log-off

The problem with this solution is that it only works if the user has logged out.
For example a pulled powercord or a network failiure will bypass the Postsession
script. Due to a problem (feature?) in gdm (Gnome Display Manager) the session
isnt cleaned up. There are a bug filed on this so if they find a fix i think we
should use it on ltsp. I have had numerous clients who cant log in or experience
strange errors in ooffice and other apps in because of orphaned processes. This
have most often occured after one of the client has died or lost connectivity.

If anyone has a solution to this im happy as a pig =)
