Description Kevin 2002-10-08 00:31:53 EDT

Description of problem:
Gnome-terminal is not correctly utilizing pseudoterminals. When firing up
gnome-terminal from the menu, it is not displayed as being logged in to the
local machine via a pts if you run the 'w' command or the 'who' command. In
previous versions, one would see themselves logged in via ptsN where N is a
number. This breaks functionality of other utilities such as write, since one
cannot write to a pts that is not available via the 'who' command.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.fire up gnome-terminal from the menu
2.execute either 'w' or 'who' from the command line
3.watch as you don't see yourself on a pseudoterminal

Actual Results:  I wasn't able to see myself logged in on a pts unless I use ps.

Expected Results:  should display myself being logged in on ptsN from display :N

Additional info:

I haven't really looked into this too much, but other people on the mailing list
are experiencing the same problems. All default packages. I tried both options
of gnome-terminal using the --login, also tried enabling it to use wtmp, etc...
nothing works.
