[PLUG] Lock down Gnome desktop

My 2.6yo son just messed up the toolbars on a shared Ubuntu machine for 
the 57 millionth time.  While I have each widget locked, he still 
manages to switch the toolbars themselves around and generally make a mess.

A trivial Google search turned up:

The first two both mentioned this, which was not installed by default on 
this Ubuntu 8.04 PC:
	pessulus - lockdown editor for GNOME

I installed it, clicked the check-box to "Lock down the panels" and I'm 
all set.  I think.  I'll have to see if he managed to defeat this too. 
(IOW, am I smarter than a 2 year old?  Very possibly not...)

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
