Yeh, it's a feature and multiple/repeat logins has been discussed
before.  It's in the archives.

The best solution for Years K,P & 1-3s, that has been proffered before
on this list, would be a kiosk arrangement whereby logins and passwords
are NOT needed.  This has been discussed and can be found in the K12LTSP
archives.  Look for kiosk.

Alternatively, I believe you could have the older students login with
specific user names but no password.  Again, it's in the archives.

Catch 22:  there is info in the archives about not getting good search
results from the archives.  Doh!  I seem to remember that the problem is
that it's case sensitive.  HTH.
