I'm new to Kubuntu. I created a new user account and wanted to start a new session for that user. Under switch session I selected "unused" and somehow ended up with the window manager completely shut down and at a login prompt (black screen, white text, no graphics). I've gone down this road before by mistake. Why did this happen, and is there a way to get back without rebooting and losing everyone's sessions?


Ctrl-Alt-F2 got me back to normal, though I'm not quite sure what the purpose of "unused" is as a session option.
