[Been quite busy, and under the weather; so sorry for not jumping in

I've been running 2 instances of CM for years, like this:

- login
- start CM#1
- ssh userid2 at localhost
  - login
  - start CM#2
# for OP's requirement:
  - use CM
  - logout

(no xhost, chuser, chroot, whatever...)

Both CM instances are available on screen. The 2nd one can simply be
logged out. No access to #2 from #1, except for USB boot, in which case,
encryption, or keeping #2 mail on a separate USB stick should solve
