Updating utmp/wtmp is not only for 'keeping track of sessions', it is also used by shutdown and other systems to know who to notify when taking down a host or notify logged in users in other cases. If NX do not update utmp/wtmp for logged in users, I would claim that NX is broken, and if it is by design, then NX is broken by design. -- Happy hacking Petter Reinholdtsen
