Well, I can't find the Session Manager since I've lost my "administrative"
items in my menu. Is there a way to run it seom the command line?
So, I tried to check out my root login. I clicked on Log Out, End Current
Session. I rushed in as Root (5 second timer on auto login), and didn't
find anything there either...
BUT! This DID give me something interesting... When I then logged out as
root, and it auto-logged in as mythtv, there was only 1 Front End running,
and the Process Table wasn't running either...
