The continuing saga of users being kicked out on 4.2.1:
I am doing the following things:
1. keep my fingers crossed, 2. knock on unpainted wood as all stations are
still ok.
I have done the following:
1. put the X ping interval at 0, 2 very carefully edited the lts.conf file
removing all obsolete references.
I am contemplating the following, if stations continue to fail:
1. return to the previous version of LTSP, specifically, use the /opt/ltsp
and /tftpdir/ltsp from before upgrade. 2. switch to a different windows
manager (IceWM) was ruled out - the users don't want to change.

I'll keep you posted. julius
