EXAMPLES

       pkcs11_eventmgr

       pkcs11_eventmgr nodebug nodaemon polling_time=5 config_file=${HOME}/.pkcs11_eventmgr.conf

BUGS
       Some PKCS#11 Libraries fails on card removal and re-insert.  to avoid this, pkcs11_eventmgr try to  re-initial-
       ize stuff by calling C_Finalize() and C_Initialize() on card removal
       Some  apps  like [xscreensaver-command] may fail due to external events ( eg: try to unlock an unlocked session
       ).  In this case, command incorrectly returns error code.
       User shoult take care on this circumstance
