At the moment, g-p-m only "works" (as in can change brightness, or
suspend) on the "real" login, i.e. the initial one you do at gdm. Once
you do a fast-user-switch, it doesn't work on the new login, but still
works on the old.

It's only supposed to work when the user is "at_console" which I
expected to be transferred to the new user when doing a f-u-switch.

Is there a bug in (fusa|pam|gpm|dbus) where the "at_console" bit is
being ignored?

Anyone got any ideas?
