Andy, if the above is changed to [ $UID < 600 ] && exit 0

Would it only clean up for users with ID above 600? 

The idea is to keep users in id range of 500~600 who are admin /
teachers so that they can do multiple logins or leave processes like
screen / wget running while they log out. 

On a similar note I have configured /etc/sysconfig/k12ltsp with PURGE=Y
but changed the UID_MIN parameter to 600 in /usr/sbin/purge_user this
allows non-purging of processes for users with UID less than 600.
