Actually, all resources allocated to a block reservation remain allocated to 
it for the duration of that time period.  So, if an instructor needs to 
lecture for 20 minutes or so at the start of class, the computers will still 
be available for reservations.  If it were a special situation where the 
class met for something like 3 hours in a row, we'd work with the instructor 
to try to get a more limited time during which the students would be using 
VCL.
