	I always do that; and yes, I've checked it twice in the last 
couple minutes. What's more, I've tried it with and without a zero in the 
"number of minutes" box. 

	And, btw, it's been doing this through more than one change of 
kernel with following reboot. 

	Istr there's an applet somewhere actually called "login" or 
something to that effect. I *think* it does other things; it might also 
include a choice of when and whether to log the user out. But I haven't 
managed to find it. :-(
