I have no chance of checking this out the moment,
but ISTR that when a computer is locked, the
desktop is actually the desktop of a different
(special screensaver) session. Exactly what effect
this will have on your program I'm not sure; it
presumably depends on the interaction between
the session/desktop and the various .Enum<xxx>
