I am using xfree4.3 and gnome2.2 (gentoo), and there is a program
called xnest. This opens a new login window under your existing login and
is actually quite stable. I quite like this, because if I am logged in as
root and make some changes to my users, I don't have to log out or su in a
terminal to see if the changes I have done work or not.
Hope this helps.

Is there a way to run KDE as a different user, overlayed on top of an
KDE session? In particular, rather than logging out of my account and then
into root, it would be handy to run KDE as root in a window within my own
session. Similarly, if one of my family want to quickly do something (check
their email or whatever), they can do it without me having to stop my
first. I've tried the obvious "su - ... kde3" and that doesn't work.
