One thing I don't particularly like, and may be caused by my own
stupidity / ignorance, is that ctrl-alt-delete no longer brings up a
prompt to lock one's screen. Instead, one is only offered the options
of either logging out, or switching user. Locking the screen only
seems possible through the combined IM / session-status drop-down

(Is there some tricky to quickly lock screens using keyboard
accelerators? super-L, like Windows?)
