Linux, the choice of a GNU generation.
It seems that various people have the same problem but I have not
yet seen some effective answer.
When closing an xterm, the finger and who commands continue to
show a user connected to a certain tty.
Moreover, it shows multpile intances of that tty.
If a user logs in and uses the same tty remained by mistake from
another user, he can even accept ``talk'' calls, while the
``who am i'' command reports him as another.
Is it a utmp updating problem?
By the way, the ``w'' command works fine. (???)
These problems appeared to me after upgrading to kernel 2.0.x
according to the instructions mentioning
libc, procps, binutils e.t.c.
Can someone please give us a hint?
Thanks in advance for any help given.
