Does FreeBSD still have the kernel panic when mounted USB storage devices
are detached without unmounting problem?  If so, you could just mount a
USB storage device, and unplug it when you leave the keyboard.  Then
your computer would be safe from snooping, because it would kernel panic
every time you walk away!

That's why it's important to be the right person today, and not put it
off till tomorrow."
