Disabling User Switching In CentOS 6

Installing CentOS 6 on a lab full of workstations, and I want to disable fast user switching. With CentOS 5, I simply made sure that the “user_switch_enabled” entry in /etc/gconf/schemas/gnome-screensaver.schemas was set to false. However, that doesn’t work with CentOS 6.

I’ve found various proposed solutions to this issue, such as

gconftool-2 –direct –config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory \
–type bool –set “/apps/gnome-screensaver/user_switch_enabled” “false”
gconftool-2 –direct –config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory \
–type bool –set “/desktop/gnome/lockdown/disable_user_switching” “true”

neither of which work, either. Does anyone know the proper way to disable user switching with CentOS 6?

Thanks!
