I'll try to explain again.

There is a touch screen computer, which should (as far as possible) only
handled with a screen keybord (xvkbd).

I enlarged the window decoratation and the fonts to use but my big
fingers (in germany we call this "Wurstfinger" (migth be translated to
"sausages fingers") to offen touch the "lock session" entry instead of
the shut down entry. Then I have no onscreen keyboard to give the
password to unlock the session.

Because there is no session locking needed I don't need the menu entry
either.

So once again my question (perhaps the programmers can help) where is
the confiuration for this part of the TDE-Menu or what has to be written
where, to disable the entry.
