Disabling the card-out screen locking

Q: Is there any way to disable the automatic screen locking when a user's card is reinserted into a SunRay? I.e., I want the saved session to come back immediately, and not require the user to type their password to unlock the session.

A: From the utxlock man page - SRSS will invoke utxlock on any session disconnect. If users wish to disable this behavior they should add the following line to their $HOME/.dtprofile:

To set this up globally do this and restart dtlogin:
# echo "SUN_SUNRAY_UTXLOCK_PREF=" > /etc/dt/config/Xsession.d/0099.SUNWut

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
