Comment 11 for bug 435930

Can we do this more "systemically" than a dialog box? Perhaps some sort
of overlay (similar to the shutdown / restart overlay) on guest login?

As for language:

"Temporary Guest Session"

"All data created during this guest session will be deleted when you
logout or reboot, and settings will be reset to defaults. [Please save
files in /var/guest-data if you would like to access them again
later.][Please create /var/guest-data if you would like to save files
across guest sessions.]"

Clearly, use the sentence that's appropriate depending on the existence
of /var/guest-data :)
