OK I understand the problem. But using your instructions about the permanent
setting (or hiding) of the "Tabs", perhaps could have in the windows
workstation one gli only for Gathering and enrich, in Linux two gli's, one for
gathering/enrichment and other exclusive for design and build, and have an
special user that could do so (design & build), ensuring that all the other
gli's are off. Do you think this could work? I have seen in the dictionary that
are messages for users and passwords, are the same than gsdl? Could I introduce
some security features to the access of the gli?

Thanks a lot for your super-quick answer. I think the next week we could start
the work. Perhaps will ask some questions about gsdl...
