Picked up from usenet; Calmira actually has a "security breach" :)

-- Erwin Dokter

"Hi there!

When running Calmira on win3.1x you can define keyboard shortcuts.
- This works fine -, but it even works if your workstation is "locked"
via screensaver (!). I.e., if, e.g. "flying windows" is running, it
_is_ possible to start an application via shortcut, anyway. So your pc
is NOT completely protected against "human errors" like stuff thrown
onto the keyboard your your kids playing with it.
Any idea how to prevent calmira from behaving like this, i.e. how to
deactivate the shortcuts when some screensaver is active?"
