[K12OSN] LTSP guest accounts

Hello guys,

We're setting up a K12LTSP 5EL install and almost everything is  
working just fine. We currently in the process of setting up user  
accounts, but ran into a problem. We want to supply a couple of  
personal user accounts, but there are also a lot of people that  
should be able to use the LTSP terminals for just checking their  
email etcetera and we don't want to give out personal user accounts  
to all those hundreds of people. Mostly because they will log in so  
infrequently that most of them will not remember their username and  
password, so a guest account would probably be more appropriate. We  
noticed however that when multiple terminals are logged in under the  
same user account things don't go really smooth. Firefox complains  
about already running and we also can't reset the guest user's  
homedir as other people might still be logged in as that user while  
another terminal logs out. Did anyone ever manage to work this out or  
have an idea?
