What would you suggest?  We should be careful of changing this just so
that it is different from Windows though, as it not only introduces
confusion in users who need to use both systems, but also smacks of "Not

This is a good idea.  There seems to be a lot of user confusion over the
role of the SAK in system security, and this should be addressed somewhere
in the control center or other configuration dialog(s).
