Description Ross 2001-04-21 16:02:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0b; Windows NT 5.0)

After computer has been running for a while, when i hit the "W" command it 
shows several more users then are actually on.  Example: I am only one on 
computer but it shows there are 4 users on the computer.  Noone else even 
has access to this box at all.  I don't show any logins, bash prompts or 
anything that would make me think i opened a new shell.  

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  For me I just power on box
2.  let it run its normal cron, etc, jobs and use like i always do
3.  I run a mail, and web server but no other features..

This smells like a util-linux problem with utmp/wtmp handling. Changing

Comment 2 Ross 2001-04-23 20:21:13 UTC
I ran up2date 2 days ago and got the mngetty fixes.  The problem hasn't 
surfaced since.  Is there a connection?  Just trying to help..

Comment 3 Ross 2001-04-24 16:26:34 UTC
Problem is still there...  Now saying i have 4 users... I am only one with any 
access to this server so i know this is not the case.  just more info...

Comment 4 Ross 2001-04-29 00:40:56 UTC
update:  How I reproduce it is to start X windows and then when i close out of 
it , it still shows the xtra user.  Is anyone still working on this?  Thanks

How are you starting and exiting X? from the command line, or gdm?
