prompt before [Ctrl+Alt+Backspace] in X windows

that would defeat the entire purpose of ctrl-alt-backspace, which is there to restart X when something goes horribly wrong. If something is horribly wrong, you probably wouldn't be able to say okay at the dialogue box

I'm not sure what you're asking. I've never seen this feature before, and wouldn't want it personally, because when I use CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE it means something went wrong and I want X to shut down immediately, not ask me questions...
Are you asking if this is a feature that is there but not showing up on your system, or if this feature is available for you to add to your system? Just what are you asking?
