"Disable user add-ons" doesn't disable UserBootscript

This is hrev32189.

When checking "Disable user add-ons" from the safe mode options of the boot screen, the ~/config/UserBootscript will still be started.

Because that option isn't supposed to affect UserBootscript. All it does (and is intended to do) is disable loading anything in ~/config/add-ons. If you want UserBootscript to be ignored, then you should be picking safe mode.

Are you sure BeOS behaved the same way?

I think it's useful to be able to disable any user specific changes of the system in case Mr. User messed things up accidentally. Be it by installing a misbehaving add-on or by modifying the UserBootscript in a way that prevents normal bootup. (Annecdote: I recently very smartly put a "shutdown -r" in there to have the system continually restart for a while for testing. That's how I found out that "Disable user add-ons" doesn't do what I assumed... :).

Using Safe Mode to boot into a full screen bash is not a nice solution for a lost user.

The current Safe Mode will go away. I think that should be done even before releasing the alpha, actually.
