This ALTERNATE_EDITOR thing almost works but for some reason it wants
to say Connect: No error (talk of rules and exceptions :-) and then

I guess they do; but I want control before that. In particular before
shutdown I want to do some actions, before lock computer some others
after logging in some others etc.
