I think I've found the problem. The last auth in -x15 mode was for someone
with a username of 4 letters and about 50 spaces.

I seem to remember reading about something like that on the list several
months ago, I'll have to check the archive. I've removed this user, and if
it doesn't crash tomorrow, case closed. This is a serious bug! Does this
exist in 2.5? I'm getting ready to upgrade next week.

BTW, the Radius and SQL services already had rights to interact with the
desktop, but it was still doing the 100% thing anyway. Know of anything
else that would cause that? Thanks for the suggestions!
