Switching between users in Ubuntu like in Windows XP


I'm working on setting up a linux box (Ubuntu 8.04 LTE), and I have 3 users setup on the box (office environment). Now if user X logs in, but leaves the room, he will leave click on the switch user button. Now user Y comes in and does the same thing, but when user Z tries to log in, he can't. The problem that I see is that when Y clicked on switch user, Ubuntu puts a rectangular log in screen witch the only button that works is the one that says "unlock", and all the others are un-clickable. My target is to make it like windows xp, where you can switch between users on the same box, with out having to log one off so the other can log in. How do I do this?

You are sure user Y is pressing switch-user and not lock-screen?
