Because the script has to start on the server after the logon script on the
client ended, the only remaining solution I can see is to write to a "magic
script" file in the last line of the login script.

On the other side magic scripts are dangerous because they start a script
the user can create. Wouldn't it be a nice idea to create a thing similar
to the magic script but where the content of the script is defined on the
server side ?

Maybe this could be implemented as VFS module.
