So if I understand correctly, you would like to customize the "Actions" 
part of K Menu to remove the "Lock Session" item?
If so, I searched a lot about this customization on the net (to remove 
the "Switch user" menu item), found some ways supposed to do the trick 
but none has given  a working result so far...
Just to let you know you are not alone :)
