just a rough thought: a combination of BgInfo v4.12 and TSListUsers probably can do that.

BgInfo v4.12 is a utility that displays specific system information on the desktop so users can see it even without logging on. it supports customized information from other programs' (including scripts) output. therefore, it is possible that it calls a script to list current users on the desktop.

TSListUsers is a utility to display the current TS sessions information you need.

as i mentioned, it is just a thought. i haven't got a chance to test it. you may read the above links, evaluate the feasibility as per your specific requirements, and try it.

hope it helps,
