After upgrading Starcraft 2 with Patch 1.5.0, the German users might
suffer from problems regarding the raster grid hot key layout.

windows, add the clock again, etc. Each time, I pay carefully attention to lock
the screen afterwards. Sometimes I get doubts, that they are just fooling me, but my
friend declined this, of course.
This time they disarranged the screen in a very extreme way1. Take it for amusement
or for considering a clearer warning of unlocking the screen. I vote for:
You might end with a coruppted system!
