Thanks, this has worked brilliantly.
I can understand the all user lookup, as I have all users in LDAP setup,
and yeah, it looks and gives them all.
However, the LDAP directory at home is rather small (like 12 users or
so) so not a problem here.

Not here is isn't
Tick box for ... Save session

Radio buttion for "Action" options..
Log out
Shut down

None of which is a switch user

- is there something else I need to tweak to get it enabled ?

Don't know if it is a silly thought or not, but could the "switch user"
dialogue be written so that there is an option either, to manually enter
new username (lets face it, people wanting to logon know a username, and
don't have to scroll to see it)
choose from who is currently already logged on

That in some ways would fulfil the requirements of the corporates with
their huge AD's /NIS by not looking every user up BEFORE providing a
list, and the people that do legitimately want to share a machine.
