  When running the `who` or `w` commands in a gnome-terminal window, it is
  not shown.  Nor can you send a write username [tty] command to the
  gnome-terminal that is open.
  
  From the gnome-terminal:

  This seems to be only showing problems in the gnome-terminal.  Any other
  terminal I have tried has worked successfully.
