This is it eh - there are some limits that can't be set - I remember
having to use 'idled' from the ports to monitor the idle times of users
and if they get to 1hr of idle time, auto-log them out as it were via
idled (the login.conf setting to do this didn't work!!!).  There are a
few others but I forget what they are now (password expiry perhaps is
one?).
