I recently updated to 2.0.8 and also updated gcc, libc, libg++ and
ld.so. After doing this I noticed my utmp would not update the xterms I
closed until someone logged off my machine (or if I logged in on another
tty and logged off). I am not certain when it started so I can't be
sure what made it start doing this but I am guessing it may have been
when I updated the libc.
An example of what happens...
I have 4 xterms open, a finger shows 5 logins (4 xterms and my tty1 to
go into X). I close 3 xterms, finger still shows 5 logins. I press
Ctrl+Alt+F2 and login on tty2, finger shows 6 logins. I log off tty2
and go back into X, finger now shows 2 logins as it should.
I have tried getting a different color_xterm and the motif xterm and
both still gave me this problem.
Screen is not giving me this problem, only multiple xterms in X.
Please post or email a fix to this.
