10.3: Side Effect
Authored by: skirtley on Oct 25, '03 09:34:10AM

I Ran the command in Terminal and also from terminal "killall Dock" Since then I logged out last night and in the morning I saw something strange!!!

There was a finder window open floating under the Login List window. I noticed that the Home Folder was labeled Root, and I Could run apps as Root! When I logged in as a user I never recieved the desktop, and Still Had my Finder window. When I ran an app, it Ran as that User. When going to Logout (from the Apple) I would see either log out "System Administrator" or log out "(the user's name)" depending on the Application I was currently Running. After Logging out then Back in as another User, I recieved it's desktop items, and Everything looks back to normal.

I grabbed a screen shot, but do not know how to post it.

Very Interesting!!!!!
