Hasso,

How do you reproduce this? Here, xdm at startup, login, then open a xterm and
issue 'w' without any problems. It shows an user.

I'm using kdm from x11/kdebase3.

What should be the result here? :0 as TTY? What does FreeBSD show?

I'm still wondering what the correct result is so I can fix this. Anyone knows?

Over a year later I still don't know what is supposed to be wrong with this and
what the correct result would be. Any insight?

Cheers,
Alex
