I fully agree with the security point.
In my case I have (in Linux) one X server for me and one for my wife. Switching
between users take about a second, a *huge* difference compared to logout-login.
Now, it would be very, very nice if I could somehow configure this so that we
both can surf the web and see the latest "videos" with sound (I have a script
doing chmod etc in Linux - PITA). The security issue is obviously moot (for me).
I do understand "my case" (the way mr. Qian suggested) cannot be made default,
but I hope it could be configured somehow to work that way.
