SuSE 9.1 'Switch User' when screensaver is locked


Not sure if this is specific to SuSE or more a KDE issue, either way I've done a load of searches on Google and LQ and have not been able to find an answer.

I have set the screensaver so that, when it kicks in, it requires a password to return to the desktop - standard stuff. However I get a 'Switch user' button on the dialog to unlock the screen. Is there any way to stop the 'Switch User' button appearing? I don't want someone to be able to switch users if another person is already logged in, I'd like the logged in user to be 'exclusive' on the physical machine.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Many thanks

the only way I can think of, is having only you as a user (besides root, of course).
