[K12OSN] Run script at logout

Thank you for your reply.

We actually ended up solving this by adding a line to
/etc/gdm/PostSession/Default that calls the unmount script.

I do like your line of thinking though, the only big reason I wouldn't go
that route is since I have already spent so much time writing the program to
work the way it does. Everything seems to be running smoothly now though.
When a user logs in, they have a "mount home directory" icon that accepts
their username and password (and does an ldap lookup for the rest) and
mounts the home directory and any other shares specified in their config
file. When they log out then, the PostSession script calls my unmount
script. The big advantage I see doing it your way though is that users never
have to log out. I will have to do a little hacking and see if I can make my
program work like that. The only stumbling block I see at this point is
multiple mounts...

Thanks again,
