Ok, after cvsuping stable again + making a new world there was no improvement. But by accident I learned the reason to my confusion about the output of 'w' in various contexts:
'w' Shows users logged in on virtual console terminals ttyvN and on pseudo terminals ttypN (ala xterm). BUT, it does NOT show users logged in on KDE Konsole terminals! I find this a bit inconsistent, but I guess it is due to KDE's architecture that KDE's terminal windows don't show up(?). Now I at least now the source to my confusion.

I even copied one over and ran that, but same problem.
