That seems like a pretty unhelpful solution. Say the system crashes?
Or KDE or
X crash? The same problem will still exist.
With this solution someone could intentionally crash your machine to
routines from running. I'm not trying to put you down or anything, in
fact I probably
know less about video related stuff than most on the list, this just
doesn't seem like
the best way to do it. I have no better suggestions, I'll leave this one to
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
